Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Doctoral Degree Programs

The PhD in Sustainability degree is a unique program designed to meet the longstanding needs of managing our resources efficiently, effectively and with sustainability. This degree is not an environmental science degree or environmental in focus. The focus is technology in using science and technology is reducing resource demand, the reliability of what we use and the engineering to deliver on real improvements. Currently wind turbine blades only are usable for 10 years, then buried until a solution of how to recycle material is not able to be used with current knowledge. Sustainable means designing turbine blades to last considerably longer, using materials that can be recycled and supporting a net zero carbon environment.

All required courses are offered exclusively online in a 16-week asynchronous format.
