MSc Sustainable Architecture and Healthy Buildings

Course Description

About this course

This course aims to build on your sustainable architecture knowledge and skills by encouraging you to consider the environmental and potential health impact of design decisions, and research how to undertake holistic sustainable design analysis within the building information modelling (BIM). It has an innovative blend of established scientific theories and design principles in relation to low energy healthy buildings and environments, and aims to raise your awareness and practising principles.

You will critically analyse current sustainable architecture and low energy design principles and technologies, government legislation, codes for sustainable design and other professional industrial and commerce drivers. You’ll also research issues that could adversely affect the health of the building users in a people centred, proactive and preventive way.

Sustainability is not just an environment concern; you’ll research its relationship with aspects of a broader contextual framework, such as socio-cultural, economic, governance and advancements in scientific and technological research.

You’ll study modules such as:

Research Methods: Application and Evaluation
Health in Buildings: Comparative Approaches
Sustainable Architecture and Low Energy Design
CPD and Strategic Management
Sustainable Design Simulation and Analysis
Sustainable Construction Methods and Materials
Environmental Risk and Responsibility
Designing Environments
Negotiated Module
Independent Scholarship
