Prof. Dr. Balkrishna C. Rao, Gastdozent aus Indien, bietet ein spannendes Tutorium mit 2 LP zum Thema Ressourcenverbrauch und Nachhaltigkeit an, das für alle Studierenden der Fakultät offen ist.

Course Content:

Planetary crises such as climate change are gradually influencing, permanently, the habitability of humans on Earth. Other than altering living conditions, the ensuing change is also affecting the global flora and fauna to which our well-beingis inextricably linked. In contrast, "human-made" crises, such as the one striking global finance in 2007-09, can dent living standards by increasing the ranks of poor and also major portions of workforce, at least for shorter periods, whose earnings are curtai-led.

Overall, these crises have made it imperative for safeguarding the environment while also uplifting living standards of societyat large in an affordable manner. Therefore, it is important to undertake frugal consumption of resources for catering to the globalneeds of the denizens of this planet by providing low-cost and high quality products. Lower resource consumption will generally notdeplete Earth's bounty in the foreseeable future while also lowering both the attendant emissions of green house gases (GHGs) and substances detrimental to the environment. Hence, frugality gels well with the tenets of sustainability.

Against the above backdrop, frugal engineering of advanced frugal products (AFIs) have paved the way for gearing engineering and, its constituents, for frugality from here onwards.

This crash course will introduce students to “frugalizing” engineering through setting constraints on material consumption at all stages of product development.
