Course Summary

This MSc will give you the engineering and technical design skills to forge a career in the ever-expanding sustainable construction sector.

The increasing drive towards sustainable solutions in the built environment is driving the need for well-educated professionals with a real understanding of this issue. Our Sustainable Building Design and Engineering course teaches you about the technical design and engineering associated with the delivery of such projects in a commercially-focused world.

You'll consider both passive (building fabric) and active measures (building services and renewable energy technologies), with key modules covering sustainable and healthy buildings, building simulation, and environmental and passive design systems.

Career options open to upon successful completion of this course include roles within government agencies, local authorities, and development agencies.

Careers and placements

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

This course is aimed at individuals with backgrounds in built environment and architectural background who are seeking management and leadership roles within the construction, property and surveying practices industry.

It also designed for mid-career professionals preparing to make the transition into the construction and property industry.

Do you provide employability services?

The School of Design has an Employability Officer for postgraduate students to consult about specific opportunities relevant to the course. They work closely with professionals in industry to ensure you are well-prepared for the workplace and have already begun to build your professional network by the time you graduate.

The central Employability and Careers Service also provides support for students preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles, such as CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops.

Modules

This module aims to introduce students to daylight, the physics behind it, the implications of daylight on people and on building design. On successful completion of this module a student will be able to: demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the nature of light and the physics behind it; critically analyse a range of building spaces in terms of their daylight performance; demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of all the metrics and the regulatory framework for daylight design; develop robust daylight proposals for buildings; and demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the health, productivity and wellbeing implications of daylight design in buildings.
