Incorporating Sustainability Teaching Across a Programme

Date From: 19 June 2017
Location: Webinar
Description: A webinar aimed at Higher Education Instructors who are interested in implementing a technically based sustainability thread into their taught curriculum.
Event Type: Webinar
Venue: Online

Time: 09:00-10:00 BST

Students have become very familiar with the phrase and an idea of conservation, but how do you incorporate sustainability throughout an Engineering curriculum?  At UCL’s Department of Chemical Engineering in connection with the Faculty of Engineering’s IEP programme we aim to capture the importance of stakeholder concerns while satisfying the technical assessment of sustainability topics.

This webinar is aimed at Higher Education Instructors who are interested in implementing a technically based sustainability thread into their taught curriculum.  Specifically considering subjects such as stakeholder management, and solving problems for both communities that are not as logistically or digitally connected to modern infrastructures, and established and growing cities.  The webinar will also address more traditionally based Chemical Engineering Design projects that must consider Environmental impact in production plant design.
