Our MSc Sustainable Design and Construction is uniquely dedicated to developing construction managers’ knowledge and expertise in sustainable practices, focussing on the integration of sustainable design and construction processes across a building life cycle.
Managing construction has become inexorably intertwined with sustainability. The requirement for construction managers to have expertise in environmental engineering, building physics, sustainable design, and the commissioning and testing of sustainable buildings is fundamental to practical decision-making and professional judgements.
This programme addresses critical global challenges by integrating contemporary construction management theory and practice with fundamental and interrelated sustainable design and construction. You will benefit from hands-on experience and knowledge to deepen your expertise for application within the public or private sector.
The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering is one of four Royal Academy of Engineering Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, and one of the most highly funded built environment groups by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The School hosts the Building and Industrial Services Pipework Academy (BISPA), which is a collaboration with global steel manufacturer Tata Steel and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). This uniquely holistic view of construction makes it best placed for developing graduates that meet the increasing demands of the sector.
