Centre for Alternative Technology

Studying at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) is a truly unique experience. For the past 40 years CAT has been at the forefront of the environmental movement, pioneering sustainable living and renewable technology. At the Graduate School of the Environment (GSE), students benefit from our extensive practical and academic knowledge, graduating with the skills needed to become leading players in the sustainability sector.

At CAT, hands-on learning takes place side by side with academic study. Residential on-site block learning weeks are taught at CAT, a truly unique and inspiring learning environment. Nestled in a disused slate quarry on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, CAT is a living laboratory for practical, sustainable solutions.

Successful completion of one of these course at the Centre for Alternative Technology leads to the award of Master of Science (MSc) or Professional Diploma in Architecture (ProfDip) by the University of East London (UEL).
