The MSc Sustainable Design and Construction programme at Loughborough University is uniquely dedicated to developing construction managers’ knowledge and expertise in sustainable design and construction, drawing upon subject expertise within the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering.


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 MSc Sustainable Design and Construction programme at Loughborough University addresses critical global challenges by integrating contemporary construction management theory and practice with fundamental and interrelated sustainable design theory and practice. 

Emphasising the practical application of sustainability within the programme will provide you with hands-on experience and knowledge to deepen expertise for application within the public or private sector.
