Sustainable Manufacturing

Graduate and Undergraduate course

The course is designed for engineering undergraduate/graduate students who are interested in furthering their knowledge in green engineering techniques. The approaches presented in this class are from the levels of manufacturing, machine and systems, as well as the overall product lifecycle and supply chain perspective. The main goal is to discuss practical aspects of sustainability and green engineering and encourage students to look at the processes and systems around them more carefully and think about opportunities to improve, reuse, replacement and reduction of the environmental impacts of the processes, systems, and behaviors.

Decision-Based System Analysis

Graduate course

The course is designed for engineering graduate students who are interested in furthering their knowledge in decision making methods during system design process. The Decision-Based Design (DBD) approach models design as a decision-making process with the aim of maximizing the performance of a designed artifact. The main question addressed in this course is: ‘what design alternative is the best considering both the performance of the design artifact and the sustainability preferences?’
