Architectural Engineering (Environmental Design)

This course is designed to respond to the significant environmental impact of buildings, which account for around 34% of all energy use and 25% of all CO2 emissions worldwide. In more developed economies, this is significantly higher: UK buildings account for nearly 46% of all energy use and 39% of all carbon emissions. As a result, there is a need for construction professionals, and building designers in particular, who can create buildings with a low carbon footprint and reduced environmental impact. This programme is designed to provide students with the skills and deep knowledge base required to achieve this whilst providing the comfort expected in modern buildings.
