Course Summary

This leading-edge programme, established before many in the built environment field were aware of greenhouse gases, has produced a stream of high-achieving graduates sought after by the biggest names in building design and the construction industry. We attract students from across the globe eager to find positions throughout the globe or to take relevant, cutting-edge thinking about sustainable building design back to their own part of the world. The programme aims to develop students' knowledge and expertise in problem solving in the area of the built environment, and provide a framework for developing innovative thinking in the design and operation of buildings, placing associated environmental issues in a global, national and personal context. This course has been accredited as suitable further learning to meet the academic requirement for Chartered Engineers (CEng) by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and Energy Institute. This MSc is particularly suitable for early or mid-career building industry professionals who wish to expand their interest in the environmental, energy and health issues associated with buildings, and for recent graduates with building industry or environment-related degrees who wish to gain further training before entering their chosen professions. Most students who complete the programme move into, or continue in, a building-related profession, such as architecture, low-energy design consultancy, or building services engineering. As the awareness of global environmental issues increases, the demand for people with expertise in the health and energy performance of buildings is expanding rapidly. A number of students have used the MSc as a foundation for MPhil/PhD research. This degree is also available as a PG Diploma with fees set accordingly. Students will take this course in flexible study mode also.
