Course content

In spite of the exciting hype around sustainability, however, we are very much lacking suitable instruments to design digital solutions, and in particular software solutions, which are sustainable and enable the above-mentioned sustainability goals. To fill this gap, we advocate the treatment of sustainability as a software quality property and define a method that helps make sustainability-driven design decisions.

The method essentially relies on the definition of so-called decision maps, i.e. views aimed at framing the architecture design concerns around four sustainability dimensions - technical, economic, social and environmental sustainability.

The course will teach students how to identify sustainability related concerns in inter-disciplinary projects, model them in ‘decision maps’ and reflect on the sustainability impact of decisions made during such projects with respect to the different sustainability dimensions. This course’s participants will be urged to bring their own project, if possible. Otherwise, a project will be offered as playground in which students can explore and develop their own personal sustainability framework.

Learning objectives

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
•    Understand the notion of sustainability and its impact over time
•    Apply sustainability analysis to a concrete project, develop critical thinking skills
•    Learn on how to quantify and qualify sustainability impacts and the role of design decisions in an inter-disciplinary context
