Studying at UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering
At The Bartlett’s Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering we pursue a deeper understanding of the interactions between the built environment and health, human wellbeing, productivity, energy use and climate change.
Our ultimate goal is to deliver interdisciplinary built environment research to improve health, wellbeing and sustainability. Our combined specialist expertise in temperature, moisture and air quality, light and lighting, and acoustics and soundscapes unlock solutions to create buildings and spaces where people can live healthy, fulfilling lives. The QS World University Rankings (2021) places our faculty, The Bartlett, as the #1 for Architecture/Built Environment studies in the UK and #2 in the World.
