Course summary

Advanced Sustainable Design gives you the knowledge, skills and creativity to put theory into practice in the sustainable development of our cities, towns and countryside. We work from the scale of building systems to entire regions.

We welcome applications from graduates of all disciplines. Our fields are architecture, design and planning but we welcome graduates that include the environmental sciences and the humanities.

Our programme is delivered in a series of practical projects supplemented with teaching on all aspects of sustainable design. You have an opportunity work in building simulation modelling and gain desirable skills for the workplace.

We believe that successful sustainable development is not achieved only through technical solutions. We explore the complex relationship of design to contemporary sustainable agendas. You will engage in cultural and professional debates about the built environment and gain a distinctive and expert voice in this field.

Career opportunities

There is a demand for graduates with expertise in sustainable development and the built environment. In this masters, you will gain tangible skills and a portfolio of work to embrace these opportunities. Many of our students use their acquired expertise to set up their own practices and consultancies with a focus on sustainable design.

Our graduates use this degree to progress within their own field, with a distinctive specialism in the job market. Our students sometimes use this masters to change their career path, often finding employment in the large multi-disciplinary consultancies that work on infrastructure and development projects.

Our degree also acts as a stepping stone to doctoral study both in Edinburgh and on a global stage to help meet demand for expert knowledge in this area.
