Anis' experience 

Anis Abou Zaki

"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

Thaleia's experience

"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.
