Course Description: This 2-hour/week seminar leads students through a process of framing projects concerned with sustainable waste management solutions including but not limited to landfills, food waste, and recyclable materials. Using the D-Lab 4-lens framework (social, environmental, economic, and technical), student teams will work on real-world projects to create design briefs addressing the client’s needs. The course may have a theme (2019: Path to Zero Waste, 2017: Agriculture and Food Waste, etc.) or be general at the discretion of the instructor(s).
Deliverables: Presentation at the end of the course and a final project brief submission. The final project brief submission will be composed of multiple small assignments. All assignments and presentation preparation will be completed in class. Grades will be assigned either Pass or No Pass. (Subject to Change)
