Materials in a Circular Economy
In this course students evaluate the roles of technology and industry in a circular economy with an emphasis on material properties, resource extraction and processing, and end-of-life reuse. Engineers, architects, and artists significantly impact the planet through their choice of materials, processes, and forms. Building on a foundation of materials, the primary goal of this course is to investigate contemporary research and construct a personal view on responsible design. Students will be expected to focus on a project and support their findings with a presentation and a report.
Prerequisites: ESC210 or ChE211 or equivalent. Material Science prerequisite can be waived with appropriate background and permission of instructor.
