MSc Sustainable Building Design & Engineering

University of Greenwich
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2  September 2018 United Kingdom London + 1 more

The programme considers passive (building fabric) and active measures (building services and renewable energy technologies) setting out what approach may be taken when considering new build or, as is becoming increasingly important the existing building stock. Alongside this students will gain the skills needed to asses these options on a whole life basis with an appreciation for how the financial and business case can be made for such approaches. The programme is closely linked with the schools Sustainable Built Environments Research Group (SBERG) and will be informed by the cutting edge research carried out by the group considering technical, behavioural and social issues associated with the delivery of sustainable built environments [+]

The increasing drive towards low carbon and sustainable solutions in the built environment has introduced a need for built environment professionals who can take a holistic view of the sustainability debate.

The programme contains core courses which give students a firm grounding in research methods applicable to the study of environmental science and the intellectual tools for understanding integrated environmental systems. The other core courses addressing basic atmospheric science and conservation ecology, provide a thorough grounding in key concepts relevant to environmental studies. The independent research project allows students to pursue more specialised aspects of the subject at a greater depth than that which can be provided by the taught courses. The optional courses cover a range of specialist environmental issues in areas of environmental and biotic risk management, environmental sustainability of businesses, and climate and environmental change, amongst other possibilities. The courses provide understanding of the theoretical approaches and frameworks of the topics, combined with empirically based learning from case studies of real projects and environmental scenarios.
