Sustainable engineering is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary branch of engineering that promotes a need for understanding trends, future perspectives, limits, boundaries, risks, resilience and long-term future thinking. Using holistic and multi-disciplinary approaches, students will evaluate infrastructure, and develop an integrated knowledge of key aspects of infrastructure systems including water, energy, transportation and communication which deliver sustainable outcomes. They will be able to critically analyse the sustainability of current and future manufacturing processes and materials resources and devise, implement and manage solutions involved with the natural and built environment.
