Challenges students to engage in a wide range of social, environmental and economic aspects for sustainable futures in engineering management. Innovations in sustainable technologies are introduced in addition to decision making strategies. A case study enables students to explore sustainable engineering strategies for the future.
Topic 1. Social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainable engineering projects
Topic 2. Life-cycle approaches and sustainability metrics
Topic 3. Sustainable technologies and innovations
Topic 4. Planning and decision making
Topic 5. Case studies
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
