Local regional and global systems

As an engineer you will be required to take a systems thinking approach to your work which will require you to pull back from the minutia of technical inquiry to consider the whole systems that you are operating in. Regardless of your field of engineering you and your work will be part of larger local regional and global systems and will interact with and affect the people living and working in those systems. The “with Social and Global Implications” part of your Engineering Economics course asks you to engage in systems thinking starting with this assignment. In this assignment you will begin the decision-making process as outlined in Chapter 1 of your Engineering Economics textbook by conducting research on a global issue and considering the social health economic and global implications. Almost everything you write or speak as a professional engineer will be directed to some audience. Sometimes it will be a specific person or a specific small group of people (your team or the C-suite for example) and sometimes it will be a more general group such as “the citizens of Tampa Bay” for example. In any case it is important that you think about who your audience is and how to speak to them. Your audience for this assignment is: Your manager Lena who has little to no background on plastic and microplastic pollution and needs to know more. Professional scenarios for this type of communication include: research for project proposals; research for clients; research for entrepreneurial endeavors; job talks This assignment has been preformatted for you and includes instructions throughout. Below are general directions for completing and submitting the assignment: Research: Use the news articles videos podcasts images and academic articles provided for you on the RESOURCES – Step 1: Understanding the Problem – Plastic and Microplastic Pollution Problem Background Information page to complete your research for this assignment.. Links are provided for you below to help you maintain the formatting within the document should you accidentally delete something. Cover Page: Replace the title name date and cover art with your own. You may use whatever layout you want. Table of Contents (TOC): Update the table (Links to an external site.) regularly as you make changes within the document (follow link for tutorial).
