Course summary

A new relationship between how we produce, supply and consume energy in our buildings is required to transform global energy systems and reduce carbon emissions. UCL’s new interdisciplinary Smart Energy and the Built Environment MSc (SEBE) will train you to be at the forefront of this revolution in energy and the built environment.

You will learn:

  • The key concepts of smart energy and the built environment, set in the context of the wider energy system.
  • The principles of building performance, their energy systems and of distributed energy system assets, e.g. storage and renewables.
  • The role of the smart energy system for society, its structure and regulation.
  • The role of individual behaviour and social structures, new business models, energy data and IoT technologies.

Careers

There has been significant global investment into smart energy systems, low carbon technologies, novel strategies to manage energy demand, and the integration of generation and storage into the built environment. These are supported by rapid advancements in digital technologies to make systems more connected, intelligent and reliable. To design and commission these systems, highly skilled specialists with a deep understanding of the nature of energy demand in the built environment are required.

SEBE MSc is designed to prepare you for a career in:

  • Energy consultancies
  • Public sector
  • NGOs
  • Energy start-ups
  • Institutions which value expertise in energy and the built environment.
