Studying an MEng Architectural Environment Engineering gives you the skills and knowledge to directly reduce the carbon footprint of our built environment. You will have the expertise to shape the design of smart and sustainable buildings. The MEng course will enable you to fulfil the academic requirements to register as a Chartered Engineer. It will enhance your ability to create detailed design proposals as part of a building design team and give you a deeper knowledge of Building Information Modelling (BIM), building physics and simulation theory. On this course you’ll also spend a year gaining industrial experience which will enhance your career prospects and build your professional skills. Architectural Environment Engineers work with architects and other professionals to bring buildings to life. You’ll learn about renewable energy generation, smart controls, thermal comfort (heating, cooling and ventilation), the acoustics of spaces and lighting design. Buildings are the world’s greatest energy users and because of this, our course has a strong focus on sustainability. You’ll become an engineer that can make a difference. You will have access to excellent facilities including dedicated design spaces, workshops and research labs equipped with the latest renewable energy technologies.
In your first and second year you will learn transferable skills, engineering fundamentals and specialist topics such as engineering mathematics, thermofluids and acoustics and lighting. Your third year comprises of a range of optional modules and project work. A strong emphasis is placed on computational fluid dynamics, energy and waste, and heat transfer and refrigeration. Modules in your final year include; research project, Simulation Modelling Theory, Building Physics and Architectural Engineering Design. Your research project will enable you to consider in more detail the holistic design of a building. You will also undertake a year in industry in year four to develop additional knowledge in aspects of management and commercial practice within industry.
