The Japanese are innovators in sustainability of the built environment. They use life cycle design procedures that reduce economic and environmental costs. Such costs are related to materials usage and energy consumption, waste generation, emissions to the environment, and health effects. Thus, this program reviews basic principles of design for sustainability. The course contents, including field trips within the Tokyo Metropolitan area, will highlight Japanese innovations from broad engineering perspectives. The companion course, Statics, supports many branches of engineering and complements study within the sciences. While the majority of the course will take place in dynamic Tokyo, cultural experiences will be enhanced through visits to several prominent regions within the Japanese island chain, including Kyoto and Kyushu.
