Sustainable buildings need not be technologically complex but a high level of sophistication in design procedures and performance analysis is required. The course has a multi-disciplinary approach to provide a broad insight into energy and sustainability issues.

Graduates will:

  • understand how renewable energy can be harnessed in buildings
  • be able to undertake the simulation and modelling tasks that are essential for credible building performance design and analysis
  • be able to work creatively within a multi-disciplinary design team

Modules studied:

Students also undertake a group design project, equivalent in scope to four modules. Working in teams from a realistic architectural proposal and design brief, students produce a design that satisfies specific environmental design criteria. The project develops modelling skills and applies computer analysis techniques in a design team context. Project outcomes are communicated through presentations and group and individual written reports.
