Course content

Sustainability Engineering concerns responsible use of the world's finite natural resources in a way that does not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This requires Engineers to make the best use of energy, materials, and technologies, to mitigate any associated environmental impacts, and to fully embrace concepts such as life cycle analysis, disassembly and recycling within the design process.
