About this Unit
In this unit we explore the circular ‘Cradle to Cradle’ design philosophy through material choice and manufacturing systems. Introduced are conventional materials, smart materials, and manufacturing systems within an ecological assessment framework, equipping designers with the tools to select and assess materials and manufacturing processes appropriate to use. Students undertake a life cycle materials research project and a design for manufacture (DFM) project in the context of emergent Industry 4.0 principles.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Access to a computer running SolidWorks and Granta CES Edupack.
