Course summary

George Clarke’s social enterprise, the Ministry of Building, Innovation, Education (MOBIE), is kickstarting a fundamental change to the building industry and our courses have been designed to adhere closely to the modular building concept and advanced home construction principles of MOBIE and revolutionise the building and construction of houses and homes. You will explore the innovative designs and construction of new homes, conceptualising prototypes of how we will live in the future and the exciting new materials and building techniques that are becoming available. You develop knowledge of housing design and are introduced to the role of computer aided design, building information modelling and model making. These are all developed alongside a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the housing provision for health, wellbeing and universal needs creating a learning experience that disrupts and challenges the concept of ‘home’ as we traditionally know it. Hosted by the School of Arts & Creative Industries, this course has academic input drawn from across the University to consider housing design, materials and technology, the role of the home in health and wellbeing and in society, and methods of effectively managing projects and leading change. You learn about concepts of sustainability, design thinking, design processes and technological innovations and you are challenged to develop new ideas and approaches to the housing and homes for the future. This course emphasises group work and collaborative learning and mixes practical and theoretical experiences. You are challenged to develop new ideas and approaches to housing and homes for the future. Graduate career opportunities exist primarily in the home design and construction industry, but also in town and social housing planning and management. Visit Teesside University’s website to apply to start in September or January.
