    Awareness, understanding and integration of sustainable
    development issues within the design process are the
    underlying issues of this course. A holistic philosophy
    is the ethos of product design making sustainable
    development a key issue. The challenge for designers is
    specifying products that meet the needs of the present
    generation, without compromising the ability of future
    generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable
    development needs to address issues that include
    economic growth and employment, social progress for all,
    protection of the environment and prudent use of natural
    resources. This is a complex and multidisciplinary
    subject and modern information technology is embraced to
