ENVIRON 365-20. Engineering Sustainable Design and the Global Community: Structural Focus

Design and testing of solutions to complex interdisciplinary design products in a service learning context with a focus on structural products. Technical design principles; sustainable and engineering best practices; prototype formation, testing and evaluation; and establishment of research and analysis methodologies in a community based research experience. Working in partnership with a community agency (local, national, or international) and participation in an experimental learning process by engineering a design solution for an identified community need. Evaluation focused on design deliverables, fabricated prototypes and a critical reflection of the experimental learning process. Instructor: Schaad. 1 unit.
