Overview

Architecture and Sustainability MSc explores a wide range of approaches related to sustainable architectural design, with a particular emphasis on building physics and design strategies that promote and encourage sustainability.

The course appreciates the interface between the environmental, economical and socio-cultural dimensions of sustainability in terms of building design and carbon neutrality.

Energy usage in buildings is responsible for approximately 45% of the total carbon dioxide emissions. There is an international imperative to reduce energy consumption and its associated gas emissions, which contribute to global climate change and pollution. The Climate Change Act set the UK government targets for 80 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 based on 1990 levels. The course develops your knowledge and skills required to produce thermally comfortable, healthy, and habitable building designs whilst minimising the energy consumptions.

Career opportunities

This course will prepare and equip you with appropriate skills and capacity to address challenges of sustainable architecture and development. Such skills are in high demand by businesses, governments, multilateral and unilateral organisations contending with issues of environmental sustainability. You could also continue with your postgraduate studies and progress onto a PhD.
