Study in a centre of excellence

All degrees within this subject benefit from an Industrial Advisory Panel comprised of built environment professionals who represent the major building and construction disciplines. The panel provides guidance and advice, ensuring our course content is relevant to industry.

The Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design offers degrees with solid theoretical bases, combined with a strong industry focus. This produces students that demonstrate not only knowledge and skills within their own discipline, but also about sustainability challenges and the need to take a multidisciplinary approach to shape our cities and towns.
