Content

Sustainable engineering is a relatively new and fast developing engineering methodology that is increasingly in demand from all engineering disciplines to enable the engineering profession to identify, develop, produce, and manage solutions, products, processes, and systems that achieve both qualitatively and quantitatively acceptable measures of sustainability.

 

This unit takes a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to the subject of sustainability, especially in exploring the fundamental theory and information and at the same time maintains a specific focus on how sustainability can be fully incorporated into the typically practised methodologies used in professional engineering.

Assessment

Four assignments (3 x 20%, 1 x 40%)
