A unique opportunity to work in international teams with aspiring engineers to complete tasks around sustainability supported by an academic mentor.

This one-week summer school aims to connect Engineering students from various disciplines from across the globe. In international teams, aspiring engineers will complete tasks around sustainability supported by an academic mentor. Students will present their findings during the EROS International showcase. This will provide an opportunity for students to share their findings with students around the world and staff at NTU. Therefore, students will identify within their team local/national/international sustainability challenges and current ways of how these are addressed. Students will then be tasked to develop innovative Engineering solutions for these sustainability challenges and how changes could be implemented.

Sustainability themes for the course:
• Sustainable Healthcare
• Sustainable Energy Consumption and Management
• Sustainable Product Design
• Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management
• Sustainable Production and Consumption

This course will include live sessions and activities, quizzes, tutor videos and directed discussions.

At the end of the course you will participate in a group presentation of your ideas / solutions.
