About

Buildings are responsible for a large share of our global energy use. Energy use is, in fact, the main determinant of a building’s global environmental footprint, considering its total lifespan. Students seeking to sharpen their skills should consider the Energy-efficient and Environmental Building Design program from Lund University.

Overview

Lund University is internationally renowned for high-quality research related to energy-efficient buildings. Our expertise is centred on a whole building perspective, which accounts for inhabitant needs, as well as their comfort and health. The University’s advanced research and its close ties to the building industry creates an excellent foundation for a strong Master’s programme with a largely unique focus on buildings.

Our students will graduate the Energy-efficient and Environmental Building Design from Lund University with advanced knowledge, skills and competencies within the area of energy-efficient and environmental building design in cold climates. Our goal is to train highly skilled professionals, who will significantly contribute to and influence the design, building or renovation of energy-efficient buildings, taking into consideration the architecture and environment, the inhabitants’ behaviour and needs, their health and comfort as well as the overall economy.

Career prospects

The rising global awareness of environmental concerns, coupled with increasingly demanding building regulations, means there is a high demand for professionals that are skilled in energy-efficient building design.
