What is biomimicry?
Biomimicry is an emerging discipline that seeks to emulate life’s strategies for human design, with a particular emphasis on sustainability. The natural world offers innumerable examples of renewable, resilient and reliable concepts, from single microscopic organisms to the largest ecosystems.
Drawing on the principles of proven and enduring designs can support a wide range of careers. Just a few examples of industries where biomimicry may be incorporated include:
- Environmental Science.
- Government administration and leadership.
While biomimicry is still developing into a distinct professional path, its principles can be applied to many areas. This biomimicry certificate is tailored to students who want to augment a current or planned career with the transformative concepts found in this discipline.
ASU Online also offers a Master of Science in biomimicry program for those looking to further develop their biomimicry knowledge and skills in the field.
Will my biomimicry certificate say 'online'?
No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
