This innovative course is for people who wish to understand the ways new and renewable energy can be harnessed in buildings, who wish to gain the ability to undertake the simulation and modelling tasks which are essential for credible building performance analysis, and acquire the ability to work creatively within a multidisciplinary design team.
The need for sustainable approaches to building design is universally acknowledged. As the effects of climate change are felt, the drive towards more energy efficient buildings is intensifying. Sustainable buildings need not be technologically complex but a high level of sophistication in design procedures and performance analysis is required.
The course has an interdisciplinary approach that gives a broad insight into energy and sustainability issues, and in-depth knowledge of the computer modelling techniques that are used in the design of modern sustainable buildings.
The course has been approved by both the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute for completing the educational requirements for chartered engineer registration. CIBSE is an international body which represents and provides services to the building services profession, with a membership of 17,000, one fifth of which is outside the UK.
The Energy Institute (EI) is the leading chartered professional membership body for the global energy industry, supporting over 16,000 individuals working in or studying energy and 250 energy companies worldwide. The EI leads and advises the sector on careers and professional development including the accreditation of academic courses.
We are delighted to offer the Vice-Chancellor's Sports Scholarship worth up to £6,000 to full-time UK and EU undergraduate and postgraduate students, starting in September 2016. Head to dmu.ac.uk/sports to see eligibility and how you can apply.
You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant numerate subject, for example engineering, physical sciences, mathematics. Architects with an interest in computer modelling are also encouraged to apply.
