This paper aims to give an insight into the importance of green ICT course in the curriculum of Master and PhD level studies. An attempt has been made to demonstrate its necessity, implementation issues and strategic plans to execute this course. General structural plans along with details of the course content are discussed in this paper. The course aims to provide a unified view of sustainable embedded system technologies, practices of using efficiently computers and telecommunication equipments, environmental assessment strategies and life cycle management of electronic components as well as end-products. The objective of this new course is to give knowledge and foresight toward assessment of environmental impacts. This course will also be capable of imparting knowledge of sustainable design approach in life cycle of the materials, manufacturing processes, use/reuse and recycling of the electronic equipments and components. The course has been proposed of 5 ECTS credit units inclusive of extensive theoretical lectures and lab exercises using suitable environmental assessment software tools.
