Biomimicry is an emerging discipline that seeks to emulate life’s strategies for human design with a particular emphasis on sustainability, offered at ASU through The Biomimicry Center and the School of Life Sciences, in conjunction with Biomimicry 3.8, the globally renowned thought leaders in this emerging field. This Certificate in Biomimicry, delivered completely online, is designed to enable you to integrate biomimicry principles and tools into your current or planned profession, and serve as a leader in the emerging network of biomimicry researchers and practitioners.
The coursework is focused on the tools and methodologies of biomimicry in the context of how they can be integrated into a wide variety of disciplines and industries. Unlike many graduate programs, which deepen the thinking within one’s discipline, this certificate provides the opportunity for you to create a hybrid of your current discipline with biomimicry. You will have dedicated time and mentorship from biomimicry experts, peers and instructors to explore the application of core fundamentals in your own discipline, field, or area of interest during the “Biomimicry Virtual Design Lab”. As such, you will benefit the most from the training with at least a few years of experience in a specific discipline.
Graduates of the certificate program are equipped to uniquely bring biomimicry to their current careers and discipline. This added value and perspective helps graduates secure jobs in the general career path of their prior training and education, as it brings a unique and highly desired complementary skill to the employer.
Applicants must fulfill the requirements of both the Graduate College and The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences takes a transdisciplinary approach to education with a vast spectrum of degrees in the social sciences, natural sciences and humanities. We inspire students to be socially aware, critical thinkers and global citizens.
