Engineering and Architectural Design MEng
This four-year programme run jointly with the Bartlett School of Architecture and the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering has been designed in close collaboration with industry leaders, to combine the major disciplines of architecture and engineering of the built environment and prepare graduates to be future industry leaders.
"Considering that engineers and architects work closely together, the fact that both disciplines are traditionally trained with little understanding of the other means that this course is perfectly placed to bridge a dangerously large gap in industry.”
Kaia Wells, Engineering and Architectural Design MEng student
Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc
Health Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc is designed to meet the growing demand for specialists to drive the health and wellbeing agenda in the design, assessment, retrofit and operation of sustainable buildings.
"No matter which way you are looking, I do believe the study experience in MSc HWSB is a solid asset, it adds credit to our competitiveness in landing job opportunities.”
Huizhong Luo, Health Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc 2018-19, Researcher on Healthy Buildings at Delos
Light and Lighting MSc
Light and Lighting MSc brings together the technical and creative sides of lighting design to enable students to shape sustainable lit environments.
“The course was challenging and stimulating, with approachable and knowledgeable tutors. It balanced the scientific side of lighting with the artistic element, and has given me invaluable tools both in lighting application and in technical knowledge. I learned so much, which has stood me well in my career in lighting that has followed. I would thoroughly recommend this course for anyone who aspires for a career in the lighting industry.”
Willie Duggan, Light and Lighting MSc 2008-09
Smart Buildings and Digital Engineering MSc
Smart Buildings and Digital Engineering MSc explores how digital engineering can lead to smarter buildings that are better for their occupants and the environment.
In 2019 Smart Buildings and Digital Engineering students attended the CIBSE Technical Symposium. "The main highlights for me were the sessions focused on smart buildings which are the subject of my master degree. As an electronics engineer, I am drawn to the use of technology to optimize control systems in buildings. Attending the event has given me the opportunity to think about the area in which I would like to develop my career in the future."
Christian Guerra, Smart Buildings and Digital Engineering MSc 2019
Environmental Design and Engineering MSc
Environmental Design and Engineering MSc is designed to meet the urgent need for more sustainable, efficient and healthier buildings, by developing experts to apply rigorous thinking and an innovative approach to environmental design and engineering.
"Nowadays the job market is extremely competitive; however, having an MSc degree from UCL distinguishes you from other candidates and shows your ability to commit to an intense period of work. In my current role as a Sustainable Design Assistant I have been applying skills and specialised knowledge I gained from my master's degree."
Antonia Vavanou, Environmental Design and Engineering MSc 2018-2019, Sustainable Design Assistant at Hawkins Brown Architects.
