Engineers have a critical role in contributing to positive economic, environmental and social outcomes. The ability to achieve positive sustainable outcomes are grounded in the ability to integrate systems and anticipatory thinking with other engineering management skills of recognising different values and perspectives and beliefs, evidence-based strategy, and collaboration. This course focuses on developing systems and anticipatory thinking, with a focus on understanding the interactions between human, cultural, environmental, economic and technical systems. The development of these skills will then be leveraged to understand the applicability and limitations of different sustainability tools and frameworks for engineering activities. The course will focus on local, regional and global sustainability challenges, and will incorporate the importance of integrating tikanga Maori in engineering activities.
