This paper outlines the development of a senior undergraduate course concerned with product design for environment. The course sits alongside other well established courses devoted to product design for manufacture and assembly and is aimed at giving students experience of the use of evaluation procedures that enable the environmental impact of products to be taken into account during product design. The course is partially project based and culminates in the students working in small groups to evaluate existing products. Based on this evaluation design changes are developed for improved environmental performance, including ease of recycling.
