Course content

The Design and Innovation for Sustainability course aims to address the engagement of design-led thinking with the business and social agenda for sustainable development. It is about rethinking and re engaging existing paradigms to stimulate new futures. Uniquely it does this through a focus on the multiple perspectives of Design, Management, Engineering and Science and their engagement with innovation and sustainability. Students are introduced to ecodesign tools, design-led thinking tools and methods of developing project and programme strategies. This course encourages design-led thinking and innovation through first-hand experiences from business, engineering and design perspectives. This heightened awareness of other disciplines provides students with a platform to apply design thinking across disciplinary boundaries in industry.
