Abstract

In this article, the focus is on understanding the awareness of sustainable design & product and health & safety among engineering and architectural students at university levels as these young graduates are representative of the workforce. This survey was conducted at five public universities in Peninsular Malaysia. On average, the majority of respondents provided positive responses (more than 80%) on the needs of sustainable design & product and health & safety aspects in their workplaces. These figures bode well for such an ambitious country to be on par with developed countries. It is also noteworthy to highlight that a significant portion who are not comfortable with investing with sustainable features.
