Engineers Canada-Polytechnique Montréal MOOC: Sustainability in Practice
Engineers Canada is offering the fourth delivery of our Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Sustainability in Practice.” The course is free and is available online in English or French.
The course has already been taken by close to 4,600 people worldwide to great reviews, and uses engineering case studies from across Canada to demonstrate the practical application of the sustainable development and environmental stewardship principles as explained in Engineers Canada’s national guideline. The course is divided into four modules, with the first one starting this week. Engineers have until April 30 to register and can complete the modules at their own pace. More information and registration is available here.
