Sustainable Building Design


About, and Background

Aims of the centre

The central aim is to produce more carbon aware and carbon literate graduates who can transform the sustainable building design field. To achieve this we  launched the new 4 year MEng course, Engineering with Architectural Design a joint initiative between Built Environment and Engineering faculties. We deliver several modules, open across UCL, and will add these and other relevant modules to the courses and modules section of this webpage over time.

The Bartlett, is comprised of several Schools, Institutes and Centres covering fields including Sustainable Construction and Project Management, Planning, Architecture, Environmental Design and Engineering, Sustainable Heritage and Energy, with a range of undergraduate BSc programmes, MSc programmes,  a doctoral centre and a wide range of post-doctoral researchers. The courses, particularly those at masters level are particularly vocational, with our graduates going on to  jobs in many of the world class companies in this field. Several of these companies are based within walking distance of UCL including Arup, Atkins, Buro Happold, Hoare Lea and AECOM amongst others.

The Engineering faculty includes an array of departments ranging from Computer Science to Biochemical engineering with a huge range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes on offer. The faculty has a core curriculum for engineering with "Major" offerings in for example Environmental or Civil; and "Minor" offerings also. This allows graduates to leave with Engineering(Civil) with Environmental for example.
