This Sustainable Engineering (including Professional Practice) programme from Aston University aims to develop globally minded and socially aware engineers that are future agents of change, able to innovate and bring forward more holistic solutions that meet the needs of societies without discrimination while protecting our natural resources.
Through a balanced provision of fundamental and technical knowledge, practical application, students will be equipped with the necessary qualitative and quantitative analytical tools and skills, and further develop essential professional skills, that will enable them to tackle the evolving, complex local and global sustainable development issues and challenges.
The role of professional engineers in sustainability and sustainable development is vital; working to improve people’s quality of life, welfare and health and safety, they provide options and solutions that minimise environmental impact and maximise the sustainability of natural resources. Naturally then, this role is significantly influenced by the opportunities and challenges that accompany sustainability. These challenges include the depletion of resources, environmental pollution, rapid population growth, and damage to ecosystems.
