Sustainable Building Design


SBD Programmes and Modules

Education in Sustainable Building Design at UCL

The directors intend to continue to enable and encourage the generation of new modules and courses that cover various aspects of Sustainable Building Design in addition to those listed below.

Both existing and new courses and modules take existing knowledge and expertise within UCL, and disseminate it to students primarily in The Bartlett (UCL's faculty of the Built Environment), and Engineering faculties but also to those who meet the eligibility criteria from other faculties.

The following may be of interest to those wishing to study Sustainable Building Design at UCL. Within these programmes are Related Modules that may be taken by current students and in some cases are also available to those outside of UCL, where space permits.

If you are interested in more information please contact the BSEER teaching team, bseer-studentqueries@ucl.ac.uk.

Within the Civil Engeering programme BEng Engineering (Civil) we used to offer two scenarios, these now don't run but some information might be available if of interest by emailing b.croxford@ucl.ac.uk. Scenario A covered some aspects of air flow design but in tube carriages, Sustainable Buildings was covered in Scenario D
