This Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings programme from University College London (UCL) builds on IEDE’s strong links with industry, and also has its own dedicated Advisory Group drawn from academia, industry and policy.


The Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings programme from University College London (UCL)builds on the explosion of global interest in sustainability, health and wellbeing in buildings, following the adoption of the wellbeing agenda by building designers and urban planners. 

The convergence of the green and health and wellbeing agendas has led to the emergence of a more holistic, human-centred approach to design, and made health and wellbeing an increasingly influential part of IEDE’s research portfolio. Research projects have so far included the impact of greenhouse gas reductions on public health; indoor air quality and overheating in homes and schools; and the health effects of moisture in buildings. 


Our graduates have gone on to work in architectural or engineering companies, and specialist consultancies dedicated to the design and/or evaluation of sustainable buildings, with a strong focus on health and wellbeing. Our first cohort have found employment in leading organisations ranging from Delos in China to Samoo Architects & Engineers in South Korea, the Shenzen Institute of Building Research, to PhD roles at universities including UCL. Several have shared their experiences in alumni profiles.

Additional career paths may be within in-house building design and operational teams, in relevant public sector agencies or government departments, or in specialist product or service innovation companies.
