Multiple facets of sustainability

In the Sustainable Technology Case Studies course, the students are challenged to think about the environmental, socio-economic and political facets of sustainability and how one particular solution may benefit in one area but not in another. The Trainees' background in natural sciences equips them with a well developed metric approach to problem solving, e.g., data determines the solution. In this interdisciplinary course we were able to introduce and incorporate the use of subjective analysis, a new way to approach problem solving for scientist and engineers.
