Why this course?

Recent data and predictions on the forthcoming rate of urbanisation make cities the most common living environment of the future.

What kind of life will it be for the seven billion people who will live in existing or developing cities? Cities hold tremendous potential, but at the same time are sources of stress, inequalities and pollution. We're working to improve cities to better support fulfilling and diverse lifestyles.

Urban design has an important role in determining both the current and future form of cities. The responsibility for the development and management of cities is becoming increasingly shared.

This course is designed for practitioners and students to enhance their understanding of the city as a complex and dynamic system.

While your focus will be on physical planning and the design of urban spaces and buildings, the various influencing factors that affect form will also be considered.

The major topic is the European metropolis, or city region, within the context of globalisation. You’ll learn to develop appropriate strategies for sustainable urban development. This will encompass social, political, economic, environmental, architectural, aesthetic and psychological aspects.

Study mode and duration:
- MSc: 12 months full-time; 24 months part-time
- PgDip: 9 months full-time; 18 months part-time
- PgCert: 5 months full-time; 9 months part-time

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/urbandesign/

You’ll study

Your course is delivered through studio work, lectures, seminars and a research project.

The studio involves work on the design of a complex urban area. This includes the levels of the entire city, the neighbourhood and the individual public space defined by urban architecture.

The course is strongly linked to the Urban Design Studies Unit's research agenda. All that is taught in both classes and studio is based on our excellent research record and helps advance it.

The department is in a partnership board with the department of Urban Studies at Glasgow University. Its renowned teachers and researchers contribute a real estate and policy and practice overview to the course.

Facilities

Programme description

The building services engineering profession is a vibrant and important component of both the construction and engineering sectors of industry. The MSc Building Services Engineering is aimed at engineering graduates to enable them to progress towards full chartered (CEng) status.

There is a strong demand for good quality chartered building services engineers who have the wide and multi-disciplinary knowledge that enables them to operate effectively on projects involving diverse technical challenges. Engineers now require a period of postgraduate study after achieving an Honours degree on an accredited BEng programme before they can become eligible for chartered (CEng) status. The MSc Building Services Engineering programme has been designed primarily as a period of further learning to follow an honours degree in building services engineering or environmental engineering.

The programme offers you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience of all technical aspects of building services design as well as providing an understanding of building management.

Assessment

Various methods are used to assess the modules depending on the nature of the module. These include written examination, course work, and oral presentation. Normally there is more than one assessment component in each module.

Professional accreditation

The programme is approved by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute. The MSc and a suitable accredited BEng (Hons) degree will together form the educational base for full CEng status.

Career Opportunities

The design of mechanical and electrical services for buildings of all types is a typical job profile and is carried out within mechanical and electrical design consultancies or within design-and-build construction companies.

Management of building facilities is another common employment destination, or in some cases the management of merchant or naval shipping and associated installations. Equipment manufacturers offer design and marketing opportunities.

Installation and commissioning of equipment and systems also offers technical and management opportunities.
