Principles of Sustainable Design

The principles of sustainable design are integral to all stages of the design and build process and can drive innovation, while also preserving natural resources.

This course includes video lectures, design challenges, Fusion 360 software tutorials, and a range of sustainable design documents and examples from leading experts in the field. During this course, you will use Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software to design, develop, prototype, and test sustainable innovation through a series of 3-hour challenge assignments.
