Ecological Design, an Objective in the Projects Engineering Area
A part of this work takes place in a collaborative environment among students which have different knowledge and skills, and the rest is carried out in traditional classrooms to steer students towards the most appropriate solution. To obtain the best results it is necessary to apply the principles of respect for the environment where being more effective. This takes place in the design criteria and bases, especially to minimize the problem at source, recovery of materials, use of new materials, life cycles of products, etc.. (sustainability and respect for the environment). European universities are currently undergoing a convergence process to build and promote the European Higher Education Area and the guidelines for this process are being followed in our area. This teaching method focuses on the need to educate people so that they are capable of learning to learn and can continue to learn throughout their lifetimes.
