Sustainable Mega Buildings (Taught) | Master's degree | Humanities & Culture | On Campus | 1-2 Years | Cardiff University | United Kingdom
The design of low and medium-rise buildings has for some time taken climatic variations and sustainability into account. However, despite the increase in the number of large-scale buildings worldwide during the last few decades, high-rise buildings are still seen as mega-scale energy consumers with little regard for sustainable design and performance. The current environmental agenda and interest in sustainability across the globe raises the significance of mega-buildings.
On this interdisciplinary course, we focus on the principles of sustainable planning and design of mega-buildings and prepare students to specialise professionally in this field.
The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the academic year. The final modules will be published by September.
