Find out what our alumni think of UCL's Environmental Design and Engineering MSc programme.
"The EDE course supports students to move onto a variety of career paths backed by sound technical knowledge. In my case, it was a crucial career moment, which enabled my transition from architecture into environmental design and engineering."
Ricardo Moreira, Environmental Design and Engineering graduate, XCO2 Energy.
"I have always been concerned with the effect of climate change on buildings and that is why I decided to further my education and study Environmental Design and Engineering at UCL.”
Antonia Vavanou, Environmental Design and Engineering graduate 2019, Sustainable Design Assistant at Hawkins Brown Architects
Gaurav, Environmental Design and Engineering Graduate 2021, Energy and Carbon consultant
"The interdisciplinary nature of the course helped me to work better within multidisciplinary teams, think across boundaries, and more importantly communicate effectively."
Marjan Gholamalipour, Environmental Design and Engineering graduate, Senior Project Manager at Arup
"The course has a wide range of modules that covered the main aspects of environmental design and engineering in the built environment. That, in addition to the university facilities (libraries, labs, tools) are amazing sources for learning and applied research."
Anis Abou Zaki, Environmental Design and Engineering graduate, Partner in Environmental Design and Sustainability at Foster+Partners
"The programme exceeded my expectations not only regarding the content of the courses, but also the structured approach connecting the issues of energy and environmental performance in buildings with the design, calculation, optimisation and evaluation as part of the decision making process. Moreover, I appreciated the multi-disciplinarily of the courses and the mix of students.
Despite the demanding workload, the activities organised in and outside the programme with teachers and fellow students gave me the opportunity to enjoy my time in the UK and, most importantly, make good friends."
Dr Thaleia Konstantinou, Environmental Design and Engineering graduate, Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology.
