Abstract

Sustainable design is highly relevant for design and engineering education, as designers and engineers are the ones that shape the (future) world. They can support a move towards achieving sustainable transformations. This article focuses on an educational initiative that incorporates knowledge and insights on sustainable design with the skills and attitude needed for interdisciplinary and international collaboration in a context of problem based learning. The article describes the approach taken for integrating sustainable design in the European Project Semester Programme, and how the content of the course has supported the student projects. The article concludes with lessons learned and future opportunities for further integrating sustainable design in an interdisciplinary educational programme.

Keywords: Sustainable design education, interdisciplinary projects, international collaboration, problem based learning
