Energy and Sustainable Building Design

The course is designed for students who wish to understand the ways new and renewable energy can be harnessed in buildings, gain the ability to undertake the simulation and modelling tasks essential for credible building performance analysis, and work creatively within a multidisciplinary design team.

Entry requirements

A British Honours degree (2.2 minimum) in a relevant numerate subject, for example, engineering, physical sciences or mathematics. Architects with an interest in computer modelling are also encouraged to apply. Applicants from outside the UK must possess an equivalent qualification from an overseas institution. If you have no formal academic qualifications, but can demonstrate extensive experience in an appropriate area, we will consider your application on an individual basis. We actively seek applications from mature students or professionals who require flexible part-time or distance learning study options.

Course modules

Modules include: Energy in buildings; sustainable development; renewable energy; resource efficient design; ventilation and daylight modelling; energy analysis techniques; energy and thermal performance; research methods; design project.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by coursework. Each taught module has two items of coursework. The first is a smaller assignment for which feedback is given while the module is being studied. A second, major assignment is due at a later date after the material has been assimilated.
