Sustainability Network Theory and Industrial Systems

Description:
  • This module is about a set of models and tools collectively based on, and illustrating, a new competency we call "sustainability network theory" or "SNT". The first part of the module introduces network concepts and examples of their application. The second part develops SNT as a means to reflect and model complex aspects of industrial networks, including interconnections between environmental, economic and social aspects. As this is a cutting edge integration of theory and practice in sustainable engineering, students and practitioners should be encouraged to develop their own applications.
