This suite of materials has been developed in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Engineering to support teaching and learning for the 14-19 engineering diploma.
Learners studying the engineering diploma at all levels need to be able to describe and evaluate the impact of engineering on the environment and the depletion of the world's resources. It is also necessary for learners to have an understanding of the concept of sustainability and measures for reducing the impact of engineering activities on the environment. Engineering has an important role to play in finding alternatives to carbon-based energy and addressing the depletion of the world's raw materials. Engineers will be central to the development of a sustainable future.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
