  • EG-108 Engineering Sustainability

    To understand what sustainability is, why it is important and how engineering can be carried out in a sustainable way. ¿sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.¿ (Bruntland Commission, UN, 1987) The three ¿pillars¿ of sustainability are protection of the environment, stable and profitable business economics and a healthy society. The module aims to inspire engineers through good case studies and to show how engineers can contribute to all three aspects of this ¿triple bottom line¿.
