Sustainable Mega Buildings
This interdisciplinary taught programme prepares students for professional autonomy and excellence in mega building design and planning. The programme trains students for adopting the role of planners and designers of mega buildings that perform sustainably, and gaining the skills required in response to the rising interest in sustainable design of the built environment. Taught modules, project work and dissertations are aimed at equipping students with cognitive, experiential, analytic and synthetic skills, thus enabling them to engage in interdisciplinary design and practice of sustainable mega-buildings.
The course is suitable for graduates in disciplines related to the built environment, such as architecture, urban design, building services engineering, building technology or a relevant discipline in engineering or the built environment. Applicants should normally hold a 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree from a British or recognised overseas university.

Applicants whose 1st language is not English or Welsh must satisfy the English language requirements for entry to the University by attainment of a minimum IELTS overall score of 6.5 or equivalent (including TOEFL 600 (250 for computer-based test)).
