The Design and Innovation for Sustainability course aims to address the engagement of design-led thinking with the business and social agenda for sustainable development. It is about rethinking and re engaging existing paradigms to stimulate new futures. Uniquely it does this through a focus on the multiple perspectives of Design, Management, Engineering and Science and their engagement with innovation and sustainability.
Students are asked to pose questions in relation to the global context of design, consumption & production. Sustainable solutions, interventions in response to these issues are then explored and interrogated.
Students are introduced to ecodesign tools, design-led thinking tools and methods of developing project and programme strategies. This equips students with requisite technical knowledge and skills to achieve more sustainable interventions. This course encourages design-led thinking and innovation through first-hand experiences from business, engineering and design perspectives. This heightened awareness of other disciplines provides students with a platform to apply design thinking across disciplinary boundaries in industry.
