B. Richards.

Sustainable development is a dominant environmental, economic, and social concern of the 21st century. This course introduces the key concepts of sustainable development and how they are integrated into life cycle analysis (LCA) assessments of system sustainability. Students learn to evaluate sustainability by carrying out LCA assessments from environmental, economic, and social perspectives. Students develop these assessments throughout the semester for a system/product of their choice relevant to their majors and/or interests, and post their work on an e-portfolio to enable peer sharing and feedback. Course is solely asynchronous and web-based. Additional course information can be found at our Sustainable Development page.
