Aims for Green Engineering Syllabus

The study of CAPE Green Engineering will enable students to acquire the knowledge, skills,values and attitudes needed to sustain the natural environment. It will provide students with a suite of tools to improve their approach to, and effectiveness at, solving real world problems.

the study of Green Engineering will contribute to a person who will learn to know, learn to do, learn to live together, learn to be and learn to transform themselves and society.

This syllabus aims to:

  1. enhance students’ awareness of the broad environmental, social and economic impact of engineering;
  2. create an understanding of how to incorporate the principles of sustainability into engineering practices;
  3. promote an understanding of the principles of Green Engineering and Industrial Ecology;
  4. develop an understanding of the interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary nature of environmental problems related to engineering;
  5. promote awareness of the global challenges related to environment and the impact of our decisions on present and future generations;
  6. apply the principles of Green Engineering and Industrial Ecology to manage and solve environmental problems related to engineering in the Caribbean context;
  7. apply Scientific, Technological, Engineering and Mathematical (STEM) principles to improve the environment at the local, regional and global levels;
  8. design solutions to address environmental problems related to engineering;
  9. develop the capacity for critical thinking, creativity and innovation, problem solving,contextual learning, collaboration, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurial skills and technological competence through authentic learning experiences; and,
  10. integrate information, communication and technological (ICT) tools and skills.
