To overcome the multifaceted problems of the contemporary world, interdisciplinary and sustainable solutions are needed. Research supports that the interaction of different disciplines boosts sustainability in solutions. This research analyzes a sustainable design developed by an interdisciplinary team through the lens of the SDGs. Team members come from different races, ages, and levels of knowledge. This study will use a qualitative approach to better understand the importance of interdisciplinarity in sustainable solutions that align with the SDGs. The results suggest that interdisciplinary designs boost sustainability in multiple SDGs through the same solutions, making interdisciplinary design more efficient and with higher impact to the world. The authors reflect on the future steps that educational institutions could take to form new pedagogical approaches that highlight interdisciplinarity within engineering schools. Implications for research and practice are provided.
