RATIONALE

Engineering has broad environmental, social and economic impacts. In fact, every day engineers and scientists make technical decisions which have significant impact on the environment. These decisions can either move us in the direction of sustainability or contribute to the growing problems. Application of the principles of Green Engineering is considered a new paradigm that allows for the incorporation of the concept of sustainability and the application of science and design solutions to problems created by conventional engineering. Green Engineering can be defined as environmentally conscious attitudes, values, and principles, combined with science, technology and innovation directed towards improving local and global environmental quality. It is the design of materials, processes, systems and devices with the objective of minimising overall environmental impact over the entire life cycle whilst meeting required performance, economic and societal constraints.

AIMS

This course aims to:

  1. enhance students’ awareness of the broad environmental, social and economic impact of engineering;
  2. create an understanding of how to incorporate the principles of sustainability into engineering practices;
  3. promote an understanding of the principles of Green Engineering and Industrial Ecology;
  4. develop an understanding of the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature of environmental problems related to engineering;
  5. promote awareness of the global challenges related to environment and the impact of our decisions on present and future generations;
  6. apply the principles of Green Engineering and Industrial Ecology to manage and solve environmental problems related to engineering in the Caribbean context;
  7. apply Scientific, Technological, Engineering and Mathematical (STEM) principles to improve the environment at the local, regional and global levels;
  8. design solutions to address environmental problems related to engineering;
  9. develop the capacity for critical thinking, creativity and innovation, problem solving, contextual learning, collaboration, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurial skills and technological competence through authentic learning experiences;
  10. integrate information, communication and technological (ICT) tools and skills.
