Core modules provide an introduction to the systems that may be used to tap natural energy resources and demonstrate how these may be incorporated into the design of buildings. Architectural students then have opportunity to explore these in design oriented projects, while engineering students pursue more technical based projects. By taking a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching the subject, the course aims to engender greater understanding between two key disciplines.

Previous Research Projects have included:
solar energy technology for building integration
environmental performance of vernacular architecture
use of porous materials for enhanced night cooling of naturally ventilated buildings
impact of curved roofs on buildings energy performance in different climates

The course attracts students from over 20 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and Latin America. Many graduates have completed a further stage of doctoral research or joined energy employment or academia in different countries.
