Advanced Technology Management (Sustainability)

This course aims to develop students' knowledge and understanding of modern, sustainable, technologies in terms of product development, optimisation, manufacture and energy supply and distribution. Students gain an understanding of how various IT-based tools and systems function while also gaining insights into how these are effectively implemented within the commercial, manufacturing and industrial sectors. This course allows students to study the product life cycle management with an aim to design robust products/processes cost effectively while minimising overall carbon footprint and environmental impact. Students explore the role/prospects that current (solar, wind, biomass, hydro power, geothermal and biofuels) and new (i.e. smart grids) technologies can play in overcoming the impacts associated with conventional energy sources (fossil fuel and nuclear) and energy distribution, supply and storage.
