Course content

The course aims to produce 'sustainable design champions' who will become industry leaders. Environmentally sustainable buildings use energy and resource efficiencies to lessen their impact while striving for an improved economic, social and environmental performance. The course is particularly appropriate for early to mid-career building design-related professionals, but is also open to those wishing to enter the building industry. The course covers environmental sustainability in all its forms: from the historical and theoretical basis through an understanding of sustainable building design and renewable energy strategies and management tools to how these can be applied in practice.
