About

The Sustainable Architecture, Evaluation and Design programme at the Oxford Brookes University is a unique, multi-disciplinary course.

Overview

The Sustainable Architecture, Evaluation and Design programme at the Oxford Brookes University focuses on the theory and practice of developing low carbon and sustainable buildings. 

The course focuses on the theory and practice of developing low carbon and sustainable buildings. You will gain an advanced understanding of the key sustainability issues related to buildings, so you can strategically influence feasibility and design processes within the built environment.

Our strong links with industry give you:

  • opportunity to learn from the latest challenges in the industry
  • chances to participate in competitions to win prizes
  • possible future employment opportunities.

Career prospects

Graduates will possess an advanced understanding of the key sustainability issues related to buildings enabling them to strategically influence feasibility and design processes within the built environment. 

They will be familiar with a range of models, tools and methods with which to quantify, predict, evaluate and manage building performance, and will be able to use them and switch to other tools based on an understanding from first principles.

Drawing on a working knowledge of how to minimise energy, carbon emissions and resource consumption in buildings through the various stages of their life cycles, they will be able to take account of changing, incomplete and uncertain information related to the environment. 

They will also have well developed skills in auditing, analysis, reporting and presentation and a thorough understanding of the interdisciplinary subject area.
