The Architectural Engineering - Environmental Design degree offered at University of Bath will help you develop the skills to become an environmental design specialist and create buildings that combine sustainability with comfortable living.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Our Architectural Engineering - Environmental Design  course at University of Bath  brings together architectural design and engineering so you can create spaces that are practical and sustainable as well as beautiful. You'll learn how to design buildings with low-carbon footprints and a focus on comfortable and healthy living. There is a need for trained professionals who know how to reduce the environmental impact of construction. We'll help you develop your design and technical skills throughout the course to meet this need. You’ll apply engineering principles and your understanding of how people use buildings to come up with building design solutions. The new concepts and technologies you’ll explore will help you graduate with the skills to develop sustainable building strategies.

We also give you the opportunity to take a five-day intensive course in Passivhaus design. This trains you to become a qualified Passivhaus designer or consultant. There is an extra cost for taking this course.

Learn from experts in the field

Based in our Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, you'll learn from academics with expertise in the effects of climate change on the built infrastructure and the need for sustainable development.
