Interdisciplinary Engineering for Sustainable Development
Sustainable engineering is the process of using resources in a way that does not compromise the environment or deplete the materials for future generations. Sustainable engineering requires an interdisciplinary approach in all aspects of engineering and should not be designated as a sole responsibility of environmental engineering.
All engineering fields should incorporate sustainability into their practice in order to improve the quality of life for all. The UNESCO Engineering Initiative is working with partners to develop engineering curricula that incorporate sustainability as an overarching theme.
