global challenges, engineering solutions
Special Features carousel image - group exercise

In addition to conventional lectures the programme offers a range of other learning opportunities in which students actively participate to explore arrange of sustainability themes and ideas. For students from an engineering background this holistic approach helps to deliver a new way of thinking through a combination of formal tuition, class activities, assignments, interactions between class members, and access to material elsewhere in the University and encourages participants to develop their skills towards delivery of sustainable development in their future careers.

For an analysis of some of the learning activities students participate in during the course see the following paper:
