Course Summary

Learn how engineering and architecture can be combined to design efficient, sustainable and environmentally sensitive buildings.

Course description

On this course, you’ll combine engineering and architecture to design efficient, sustainable and environmentally sensitive buildings. You’ll cover thermodynamics and energy use in buildings, efficient structural design, material selection – including low impact materials – thermal modelling, airflow analysis and urban microclimate design.

You’ll have access to our leading lab and computer facilities and state of the art equipment, working with wind tunnels, the Urban Flows Observatory Visualisation Suite, virtual reality equipment and thermal cameras.

You’ll be prepared to design and construct buildings to creatively and innovatively reduce environmental impact. Our graduates go on to become building services professionals, environmental design specialists, and low-carbon built environment practitioners.


This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.

The course is also accredited by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers.
