Architecture and Sustainability MSc

Course Description

Buildings consume approximately 45 per cent of the total energy to maintain acceptable thermal environmental conditions, and to provide healthy indoor environments. 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 34 per cent and 80 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and 2050 respectively based on 1990 levels.

The Architecture and Sustainability MSc provides the opportunity for you to develop the knowledge, skills and research themes in relation to your specialist research. It offers you a wide range of approaches to sustainable architectural design through research units, specialising in building physics and design strategies to promote and encourage holistic sustainability analytical approach, housing and sustainable community.

The course responds to these challenges and focuses on the interface between the environmental, economical and social-cultural dimensions of sustainability to approach building design to carbon neutrality. The aim of the teaching theme on sustainability is to equip, train and inspire you to become responsible ‘global’ citizens in the face of the new global and environmental challenges ahead of you.

A range of tools and simulation software are available to you and will allow you to develop and test your design proposals at various design stages starting with site considerations, through the design and development stage to the final scheme, ensuring sustainable outcomes.
