What You’ll Learn
The Sustainability Engineering coursework will familiarise you with the challenges of the Global South and how to engineer sustainable solutions to the problems, together with the problem owners in a community in Namibia.
You will stay a period of 6-7 weeks in the community, working with a team of students from diverse fields and backgrounds. You can apply the insights of world-class experts that you will meet at the orientation course before the field work. After the concrete period in an African context, you will deepen your observations as a reflective diary. Finally, we expect you to co-author a peer-reviewed analysis of your coursework.
In concrete, after completing the course you will be
- Aware of the key challenges that sustainability poses for engineering
- Able to integrate sustainability to their research and praxis
- Able to design and craft sustainable engineering solutions together with stakeholders
- You will learn to work in an intercultural environment where you learn by doing but also by being.
