Course Summary

In addition to the existing DEng program, we have an exciting new suite of six doctoral programmes aimed at practising professionals in the built environment. Our professional doctorates will provide you the opportunity to demonstrate and develop advanced knowledge and skills necessary to undertake and complete a practical research and development project.

Sustainability is a hugely important part in all areas of the built environment, in policy, in building regulations, in real world implementation, and for building occupants. It is essential that professionals in the built environment had the right skills and knowledge to be able to fully implement sustainable strategies into construction projects. The principles of sustainability cannot be bolted onto existing practices but will fundamentally reshape the approach of all disciplines involved in building projects. The doctorate in sustainable buildings will provide an opportunity for candidates to investigate how sustainability can create changes to practices and can be best embedded in projects.
