This course provides an overview to the emerging field of Life Cycle Engineering (LCE), which assesses the environmental and economic considerations of a product from production through to use and end-of-life options. Workshop participants will learn about the concept of LCE and its market drivers. The course explores the key aspects of LCE including life cycle assessment (LCA), life cycle costing (LCC), technical challenges and opportunities for incorporating this strategy within engineering design, and future trends for LCE informing sustainable development, including a short introduction to the ISO 14000 suite.
