Taught full-time over four years this degree is the first stage in your architectural education. Gain the specialist knowledge and skills required to actively shape the environment that keeps building occupants comfortable. You will be in the enviable position of being able to generate high-quality architecture that exhibits a truly holistic response to climate and the needs of the building occupants. You will be part of the vibrant studio culture which sees students from different programmes mix within studio units. You will have the opportunity to submit your work to international competitions such as CIBSE Young Engineer Award and the Royal Academy British Institution Award for Students’ Work.
In year one you will develop key design skills and techniques as well as looking at fundamental ideas and concepts relating to environmental design, construction, structural design, and architectural theory. You will also learn important mathematical tools that support the design of environmentally responsible building systems. The second year explores the concepts behind the active and passive systems used to provide healthy, comfortable conditions for building occupants and includes modules such as: electricity and the built environment, tectonics, architectural humanities and environmental sciences. In year three you will progress to advanced environmental design techniques and complete a major studio project, designing a complex building. Your fourth year will develop your ability to tackle complex building briefs and your independent research skills.
