Principerna för hållbar design är integrerade i alla stadier i design- och byggprocessen och kan driva innovation, samtidigt som naturresurserna bevaras.

Denna kurs innehåller videoföreläsningar, designutmaningar, programvaruhandledning för Fusion 360 och en rad hållbara designdokument och exempel från ledande experter inom området. Under denna kurs kommer du att använda programvaran Fusion 360 CAD / CAM för att designa, utveckla, prototypa och testa hållbar innovation genom en serie 3-timmars utmaningsuppdrag.

Genom att använda detta strukturerade tillvägagångssätt kan du lära dig att stänga av dina förutfattade meningar och se saker på ett nytt sätt. Oavsett om du vill förbättra en befintlig lösning eller ta itu med en hållbar utmaning för första gången, förbereder denna kurs produktdesigners och ingenjörer att ta ett snabbt steg framåt för att integrera principerna för hållbarhet i deras designprocess.

The Principles of Sustainable Design



The principles of sustainable design are integral to all stages of the design and build process and can drive innovation, while also preserving natural resources.

This course includes video lectures, design challenges, Fusion 360 software tutorials, and a range of sustainable design documents and examples from leading experts in the field. During this course, you’ll use Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software to design, develop, prototype, and test sustainable innovation through a series of 3-hour challenge assignments.

Working through this structured approach, you can learn how to suspend your judgment and look at things in a new way. Whether you are looking to improve an existing solution or address a sustainable challenge for the first time, this course prepares product designers and engineers to take a quick step forward to integrating the principles of sustainability into their design process.
