Engineering and applied sciences benefit from hands-on learning. Offering case studies for iterative evaluation, this article discusses holistic teaching of systems engineering and sustainability concepts. Two approaches are presented and compared: “bottom-up” to enable the use of new material and energy resources and “top-down” for existing systems to improve existing process plant operations. Both these approaches can be used in education and at operating companies.

Industrial case studies play an increasingly important role in the teaching of systems engineering and sustainability. This article discusses holistic systems interactions through the use of two case studies. Each industrial example makes use of “closed loop” optimization of material and energy inflows and outflows to minimize waste and harmful environmental emissions. The decision-making process demonstrated is applicable both at the University level as well as for operating companies.
