UT Arlington offers sustainability courses in a variety of disciplines, and we’re adding more every semester. These classes prepare students from all academic backgrounds to analyze the connections between social, economic, cultural, and environmental phenomena and address global concerns about the future.
The Sustainable Engineering Minor prepares students in all engineering disciplines to ask questions and analyze problems from a sustainable engineering perspective, and develop sustainable solutions. Sustainable Engineering may be defined as engineering for human development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Due to population growth and expanded global development, the next generation of engineers must be able design with fewer resources for a wider variety and greater number of end users. To receive a minor in Sustainable Engineering, 6 courses are required, for a total of 18 hours.
