Develop the skills to become an environmental design specialist and create buildings that combine sustainability with comfortable living.
Our course brings together architectural design and engineering so you can create spaces that are practical and sustainable as well as beautiful. You'll learn how to design buildings with low-carbon footprints and a focus on comfortable and healthy living. There is a need for trained professionals who know how to reduce the environmental impact of construction. We'll help you develop your design and technical skills throughout the course to meet this need. You’ll apply engineering principles and your understanding of how people use buildings to come up with building design solutions. The new concepts and technologies you’ll explore will help you graduate with the skills to develop sustainable building strategies.
We also give you the opportunity to take a five-day intensive course in Passivhaus design. This trains you to become a qualified Passivhaus designer or consultant. There is an extra cost for taking this course.
Learn from experts in the field
Based in our Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, you'll learn from academics with expertise in the effects of climate change on the built infrastructure and the need for sustainable development. Their international collaborations and research activity feed into our teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Our research was ranked 1st in the UK in the Architecture and the Built Environment submission in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
Use specialist facilities
We have a range of facilities to support your studies including environmental monitoring facilities and an artificial sky with light meters. You’ll also have access to specialist computer and software facilities for environmental modelling. Our laboratories contain equipment that exceed industry standards
Start your future here
Our course prepares you for a career in industry, research or academia by giving you the knowledge to make a valuable contribution to sustainable development. We work with industry partners to make sure that your studies reflect good practice in environmental design. Our graduates have gone on to work in some of the top UK and international engineering and design companies, including BuroHappold, ARUP and SWECO.
You could also choose to continue your studies with us on our PhD programme.
