Course Overview

Participants will embark on a practicum or research project in which they critically review current knowledge and practice in one area of interest and either develop a model and feasibility study or a significant change to their own or others’ practice and explore the impact of this change. This project will run throughout the entire program and relate to all courses. They will be supported throughout the process with critical thinking skills, as well as sustainable design tools and methodologies. For professionals, the project could be based on their own work context. For participants who are not engaged in practice, projects can be arranged as internships for other organizations (online or face to face at a location accessible to participants). It is also possible to conduct a research study for an intended audience. The project might include, but is not limited to: a feasibility study for the development of a new interdisciplinary sustainability/health/engineering process within an organization; conducting a feasibility study and design of a locally appropriate interdisciplinary intervention in a specific context; collaboration with a community organization or NGO/INGO to design a project or training scheme for engineers and healthcare and development professionals in local culture, environmental, health issues, and human rights; design projects that identify and incorporate appropriate solutions for collaboration between environmental scientists, engineers and health and / or development professionals.
