Abstract: Engineers are expected to cover an increasingly wide range of issues within their educational development. Ability to assess the environmental impact of their actions is part of this expansion and so understanding the "environment" is required. Developing a curriculum that is comprehensive from an environmental perspective yet relevant to the interests of engineers, within a limited amount of time, requires judicious selection of topics and appropriate presentation if the students are to be engaged. This case study is further complicated by an internationally diverse cohort of students, many from low-income countries with differing financial, ecological, legal and social contexts. It shows how the course was planned, using theoretical educational models to provide a framework. Wider lessons are presented on curriculum development for interdisciplinary courses.
