SUS 340 - Biomimicry- Nature Inspired Product Design, 3 credit hours


Biomimicry is an emerging field that is encouraging scientists, engineers, social scientists, and inventors to look more closely at nature’s way of doing things as more sustainable than our human way. Nature has a rich and largely unexplored library of technologies that process and manage information, materials and energy. Students will both engage in the process of investigation as well as learn about opportunities for applications in various professional and vocational fields, thus broadening their carrier choices and desires. Students will have unique opportunity to learn and experience how biomimicry inspires and makes changes to various human activities and disciplines: business or organizational managers, architects, engineers, automotive and airplane industry, sustainable energy designers, biologists, entrepreneurs, builders and policy makers. Biomimicry is inspiring these various fields and societies to be more responsible and resilient, and to find and apply solutions to old and new problems in a more sustainable way.
