US (AZ): CEAC Presents 2015 Spring Short Course

The 2015 Spring Crop Production & Engineering Design Short Course will be held from March 22–27 and will be held at the beautiful Westward Look Resort. Discounted registration for the course and a discounted hotel rate at the Westward Look ends February 27th. The full course features 3 full days of lecture on all things CEA, followed by a hands-on workshop day at the Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC). Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with researchers and industry professionals throughout the course.

There is also an alternate Webcast attendance option, where students can watch live lectures from wherever they may be with a secure internet connection. Webcast attendees receive many of the same benefits as full course attendees such as live streaming of lectures and the ability to ask real-time questions to the lecturers. Course Lectures are put in a password protected online database for a minimum of 2 months after the conclusion of the course, where all attendees can watch the lectures at their convenience. However, the only way to attend the hands-on workshops and get the full experience with industry professionals is to be in Tucson at the Full course.

The 2015 Short Course will feature new topics that focus on resource conservation and sustainability. New lectures include a special talk by UA Ag Director and food safety specialist, Kurt Nolte, on “Greenhouse Crop Food Safety” and a talk “Alternative Energy Integrated CEA Systems” by CEAC professor Murat Kacira.
