“There are very few educational degrees relating to healthy buildings in Taiwan, and there are very few professionals specialising in health, wellbeing and sustainable buildings. According to the vice president of IWBI ASIA, I am the first in Taiwan to graduate from a research institute specialising in healthy buildings. This makes my resume very competitive.”

"Personally, I feel this course has opened up a lot of horizons for me to understand at length how the field of sustainability brings together research and design.This course has given me a wide range of transferable skills which I didn’t have prior to my MSc.“
