This complimentary 3-hour short course is specifically designed for undergraduates (or post-graduates new to LCA), to provide an introduction to life-cycle assessment (LCA). In this course you will learn the basics of the LCA method and its application to real-life situations.

LCA provides a holistic quantitative technique to evaluate environmental impacts of products, systems, and technologies. It provides a valuable tool for environmental analysis and decision making. This course will provide an introduction to LCA methods, techniques, results, and applications. On completion of this course you will have an understanding of life cycle thinking and why it is important in environmental decision making; explain the basics of the LCA method and interpret its results, and discuss the advantages and limitations of LCA in practice. The course will cover an introduction to life-cycle thinking, methods of LCA, results interpretation, applications, and hands-on case studies.
