Description

Our Sustainable Building Design and Engineering, MSc degree Combines technical design and engineering associated with the delivery of sustainable built environments

Why study this at Greenwich?

  • There is an increasing drive towards low carbon and sustainability

  • Combines technical design and engineering associated with the delivery of sustainable built commercial environments

  • The programme considers passive (building fabric) and active (building services and renewable energy technologies) measures

  • Students will consider which approach to take when considering new or existing building stock

  • The programme is closely linked with the schools Sustainable Built Environments Research Group (SBERG)

  • Programme works with cutting-edge research carried out by the SBERG on 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. This programme will combine the technical design and engineering issues associated with the delivery of sustainable built environments with an appreciation for how such approaches can be justified in a commercially focused world. 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.

Students will gain the skills needed to assess 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 University of Greenwich is a Passive House Examination Centre and students can gain extra certification as a Passive House Designer/Consultant by taking the programme.

Outcomes
The aims of the programme are to:

  • Develop skills and understanding around the principles of sustainable building with a view to delivering healthy, comfortable, efficient and environmentally friendly buildings

  • Consider how the above issues can be applied when working with existing buildings

  • Take the technical knowledge gained and working within a commercial world to produce convincing and robust business cases for implementing sustainable solutions.

Facilities
The university has invested £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction.
