PG Coursework Unit
Challenges students to engage in engineering management for a wide range of social, environmental and economic aspects of a sustainable future. Decision-making strategies for shaping sustainability outcomes from infrastructure and engineering technology and new Innovations are explored. A case study enables students to apply strategies for a sustainable future across the engineering system life cycle, from concept to implementation and operation.
- Social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainable engineering projects
- Life-cycle approaches and sustainability metrics
- Sustainable technologies and innovations
- Planning and decision making
- Case studies
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||critically evaluate and reflect on social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainable engineering projects|
|2||apply evaluation tools for sustainable engineering practice decisions|
|3||identify and critically evaluate a range of emerging sustainable technologies|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- critically evaluate and reflect on social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainable engineering projects
- apply evaluation tools for sustainable engineering practice decisions
- identify and critically evaluate a range of emerging sustainable technologies
