The engineering profession is engaged beyond building structures, shaping tools, or the hardware curtain; professionally engineers are engaged daily in decisions that influence sustainability of humanity. Considering sustainability in engineering design is not itself an implicit, analytic or measurable property, the aim of this article is to integrate sustainability thinking into regular engineering design projects such as process or product design, materials or processing technology projects. Furthermore, in light of contributing to the growing sustainability body of knowledge we present a combined design model that includes: design science parameters and design engineering sequences in order to engage engineering design more effectively to advance the goal of sustainability. The proposed process incorporates sustainability indicators as explicit performance criteria in (EDPS) Engineering Design Process with Sustainability. Hence the proposition of sustainability from an engineering design standpoint is no longer vague and constantly being redefined based on the individual’s understanding. Instead prospective engineering designs can be clearly guided through a standard criterion.
