Introduction to sustainability: Multidisciplinary Approaches and Solutions


This six-module course provides an introduction to sustainability from the perspectives of several different disciplines from engineering and natural sciences to business and economics. This core course which is offered to all the first year NTU students (about 6000) introduces the importance of sustainability and how we can create dynamic societies with a sustainable future within global limits. The online course allows students to grasp the fundamentals of the course at their own pace. They can replay or retry materials/activities as many times as they wish. They can pause to do further research elsewhere to augment the materials that their instructor has provided, without having to interfere with other learners’ progress. Students would need to take and pass a quiz at the end of each module as they progress through the course.
