How would you describe your knowledge of the concept of sustainability before this course?
I didn’t particularly know what is was other than we all should reduce, reuse, recycle and that we want resources to last a long time. I didn’t know there was a social aspect to it. I was interested in the idea of sustainability in terms of the human race but it’s also much more than that.
What was your favourite topic taught in class; what lessons will you take with you?
The case studies in corporate sustainability issues. I liked being forced to look into what actual companies are doing to be sustainable. It gave me an insight into my future as to how I would prevent green washing and how I am going to promote sustainability in my future.
If you could give any advice to a student interested in taking or enrolled in preparation for SUSTAIN 1S03, what would you say?
You should be excited!!! Push yourself to be immersed in the content. I believe every engineer should take this course because it is along the lines of what our future looks like. No matter what you study or what you are interested in, the smallest person can make a big difference for our future!
