Cambridge Ice Hockey Team 2014

Congratulations to Mike Kang, a current ESD MPhil student, who was the goalkeeper in the Varsity ice hockey match at Oxford on Saturday 8th March. Oxford won but the score would have been much worse if Mike hadn't been there!

Course Overview


The need to engage in better problem definition through careful dialogue with all stakeholder groups and a proper recognition of context.


An ability to work with specialists from other disciplines and professional groups acknowledging that technical innovation and business skills also must be understood, nurtured and combined as precursors to the successful implementation of sustainable solutions.


An understanding of mechanisms for managing change in organisations so future engineers are equipped to play a leadership role.


An awareness of a range of assessment frameworks, sustainability metrics and methodologies such as Life Cycle Analysis, Systems Dynamics, Multi-Criteria Decision making and Impact Assessment.
