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'll use Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software to design, develop, prototype, and test sustainable innovation through a series of 3-hour challenge assignments.

Working through this structured approach, you can learn how to suspend your judgment and look at things in a new way. Whether you are looking to improve an existing solution or address a sustainable challenge for the first time, this course prepares product designers and engineers to take a quick step forward to integrating the principles of sustainability into their design process.
