Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Climate change, embodied energy, embodied water and global restraint on greenhouse gas emissions mean existing corporations, institutions, industries and businesses will undergo fundamental change driven by scarcity of resources and the price of carbon. This unit will draw on the offerings in this Masters program and further individual/ group work to prepare a futuristic report that offers realistic alternatives or options to either existing or proposed organisations. The students, working alone and in groups, will need to explore the impacts of climate change, peak oil and greenhouse gas emissions on a specific organisation. Through this project-based learning the student will develop experience in complex problem solving and an appreciation of the complete life cycle of 'sustainable' infrastructure in organisations. The group shall submit an original Futuristic Report focussing on the sustainable infrastructure components for a particular organisation/industry in the year 2020.
