Nature offers boundless inspiration for sustainable design, but how do we access the wealth of biological information available and apply it effectively to design?

Learn core biological principles and the wealth of design solutions available in nature. Explore and examine numerous examples of innovative designs inspired by natural models. Overall, this course provides powerful metaphors and methods for looking to nature as model, mentor, and measure in our designs. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies. 

How does an online course work at MCAD?
Most online courses are asynchronous, meaning that there are no set class meeting times. Instead, courses are project-based, with 2 to 3 deadlines per week, and students can choose a time and place that works best for them to complete the work. Course activities may include readings; video demonstrations and tutorials; online discussions; projects; and critiques. The workload of an online course is roughly 8-10 hours per week, whether the course is being taken for credit or noncredit.
