Buildings are the world’s greatest energy users. We need architectural environment engineers to work at the forefront of creating a global low carbon future. This course gives you the knowledge and skills to work alongside architects, influencing design of sustainable, smart buildings as well as structures like stadiums, water parks and indoor ski-slopes. You’ll learn all about renewable energy generation, smart controls, thermal comfort, acoustics and lighting design. You’ll become an engineer that can make a difference – sharing your knowledge to improve global building performance and services. Set within our mini-campus on University Park, you will have access to excellent facilities to support your studies and research. These include dedicated studio 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.
How to apply
You can no longer submit a new application for courses starting in 2022.
If you already have a 2022 application and are in Clearing, you can add this course as a Clearing choice – contact the university or college first to check they have places.
This is the deadline for applications to be completed and sent for this course. If the university or college still has places available you can apply after this date, but your application is not guaranteed to be considered.
