PROJ_MGT 446: Systems Thinking for Sustainable Design

Quarter Offered

Winter : Mon 4:10pm--7pm ; Michelle Halle Stern, Helen Kessler


Approval of MPM director


Systems thinking is required to create a sustainable future. With its many interacting systems, sustainable design is too complicated to be addressed in a linear fashion, as is typically the case. This course will explore holistic thought processes and focus on various nonlinear approaches to implement a sustainable design process. Included among the core discussions will be systems thinking, regenerative design principles, the integrative design process, and interdisciplinary practice.

This course is offered entirely online.
