Intended learning outcomes

This course aims to contribute to knowledge and awareness about emergence of environmental problems and possible solutions of these problems. Focus is on the role of the engineer in proactive work to decrease environmental impact in relation to societal flows of material and energy. After successful completion of the course the student shall:

  • Be able to describe the important environmental problems that has been presented during the course, and on an overall level, be able to describe the environmental and health effects these problems are causing,
  • On an overall level, be able to describe the development within the environmental field, historically and today, and clarify how probable future scenarios concerning population growth and other societal development might affect the situation,
  • Be able to apply the above mentioned knowledge by solving reality based case studies,
  • Especially for important technical systems, be able to explain how they affect the environment , and through critical evaluation, explain how they can be adapted to reduce the environmental impact.
  • Be able to describe central parts and characteristics of modern corporate environmental management.
  • Be able to compile, present, and criticize a product report from a life cycle perspective,
  • Be able to convert knowledge about environmental technologies by constructing and criticizing questions.

Course content

Emergence of and scientific background to environmental problems; sustainable development; environmental issues in relation to technical systems; technical, economical and political measures to solve environmental problems. The role of the engineer concerning the environment and sustainable development.
