Overview

Solutions to these global challenges, such as environmental sustainability, call for systems thinking. We need to understand the context in which a product is going to operate and whether it relates to the need to reduce emissions, use less oil-based fuel or water, end-of-life disassembly, or marketing in a region which taxes based on a footprint.

By understanding the broader context in which the challenges lie, we are able to identify more sustainable solutions.

You will take courses on renewable energy and energy efficiency, waste management, life cycle management, emission control and reduction, climate change, and sustainable business and innovation.

Your Sustainability Science and Solutions programme from LUT University will focus on industrial and corporate processes and practices, enabling you to acquire knowledge and skills to introduce sustainability solutions to the corporate and government sectors.
