We believe architects have a responsibility to look after our planet for the benefit of future generations. If you share that belief, this course will put you on the path to a rewarding career.
The course provides the opportunity to develop a portfolio of advanced skills and knowledge across several architectural disciplines, with a focus on sustainable architectural design.
You’ll study the key principles of sustainable architecture and work on real projects – refurbs and new builds – with real clients. Our teaching staff are leading researchers in lighting, acoustics, modelling, building performance and materials with low embodied carbon.
The course equips students with a comprehensive knowledge of sustainable architecture and the techniques involved. We will also show you how to plan, conduct and record your own research.
