Courses

Numbers on the university's one year MPhil for Sustainable Development have risen steadily since it was introduced three years ago, says course director Dick Fenner.

'We've had lots of civil engineers on the course, ' he says, which was developed in partnership with the US based Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston.

'Most of the students have a very strong first degree in engineering and traditional engineering skills of problem solving.

So this course is much more about problem definition and reforming problems to meet needs.

It is really about the context in which engineering takes place and it will give people the skills to implement change which is key to sustainability.' Find out more www-g. eng.cam. ac. uk/sustdev/index.html
