We will take a closer look at the lifespan of a product and how we can make our products sustainable. Upon completing the course you should:
- Understand life cycle assessment (LCA) principles, standards and digital tools, and their relevance and applicability to engineering.
- Have the ability to perform life cycle assessments of engineering products and carbon foot-printing of construction projects to current standards.
- Have the ability to interpret LCA and foot-printing results critically with respect to the environmental impacts, and propose more sustainable solutions through scenario modelling.
This course uses blending learning methods. Classroom lectures and exercises are supplemented with online exercises.
