Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

[1]     Describe the sustainable development concepts, scope, and the impacts in aspects of life.

[2]     Explain sustainable manufacturing, macro sustainability issues, in relation to environmental regulations and the implications in business process.

[3]     Apply the concept of sustainable on upgrading, reuse, remanufacturing, and recycling of product.

[4]     Analyze the Life Cycle Management (LCM), Life Cycle Engineering (LCE), Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), and Life Cycle Costing (LCC)on design product and product.

[5]     Evaluate impact of product design and development toward environment and sustainability. 



This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of sustainability issues, the concepts and the scope of Sustainable manufacturing (SM), the strategies in SM, the management approaches in SM, and tools commonly used in SM. In the current situation, integrating sustainability into business process will enhance business’s total performance and competitiveness. Skills developed and knowledge acquired from this course will prepare students to be environmentally conscious engineers who are sensitive to environmentally, economic and social/community related problems and capable to solve those problems and enhance total performance of industries.
