SUST-405 Production, Consumption, and Waste

3 Credits

No product or building is adequately designed without considering the consequences of its deterioration and disposal. Evaluating the ways in which consumers, states, and manufacturers define and classify waste allows us to consider those consequences. In this course, students analyze ways in which waste is created, defined, and managed in industrial society, and they create recommendations for improving problems with the waste stream.
