This 2-course program enables industrial design engineers to take their first steps in designing for a circular economy.
In the first course, you will explore the basic concepts of the circular economy and their implementation from various perspectives: how businesses can create value by reusing and recycling products; how designers can come up with amazingly clever solutions; and how to apply systems thinking to the transition to the circular economy.
The second course is more practical. You will learn more about strategies in circular product design (including reuse, repair, remanufacturing and recycling) and how to integrate lifecycle design both into your daily work and your organization’s vision. You will also receive tips and tricks to design accordingly and learn how to make better decision for current and future products designs.
If you are looking for ways to upskill yourself and become a designer who not only creates great designs but contributes to the environment through sustainable engineering design – this is the program for you!
