The course is designed to allow discussion and exchange of information between different disciplines and encourages novel and imaginative solutions to the challenge of producing environmentally friendly buildings.
Core modules provide an introduction to systems able to tap natural energy sources and also cover sustainable technologies and their potential for incorporation in the design and fabric of buildings.
Architectural students will have the opportunity to explore integration of sustainable technologies in design-oriented projects, while engineering students will pursue more technical-based projects.
You will spend the summer semester producing a supervised dissertation. This will be your opportunity to undertake a major piece of independent research related to building and sustainable energy technologies.
The MSc Sustainable Building Technology is offered on a full-time basis over one year (12 months), or part-time basis over two years.
Registered part-time students are strongly recommended to be resident in Nottingham during the autumn and spring semesters.
The course comprises 180 credits, split across 120 credits worth of taught modules and a 60-credit written dissertation completed over the summer period.
