ME 589/ISD 589
Sustainable Design of Technology Systems
This course will apply the basic blocks of knowledge and skills that you learnt in ME 489/ISD 588 to assess whether a product, process, technology, engineered system, or policy (decided based on the students' interest and instructor approval) meets the triple bottom line of sustainability. It is therefore recommended that students take ME 489/ISD 588 prior to taking this class. Course content for ME 489/ISD 588 will however be available online in the form of modules, which students who have taken the class previously can utilize to brush up on certain topics, and students who have not taken the class can use to get familiarized with the theory. Students in this class will work in teams, and the format of instruction and deliverables will closely emulate the approach adopted in a senior-level design course.
