Course summary

Overview

The results of unsustainable human development in the 21st century are evident as climate change, species extinction, pollution, poverty and inequality become inescapable global realities. The next big challenge for society is to transform our economy to incorporate the principles of sustainability. This presents an exciting opportunity to rethink, redesign and rebuild a positive future for business practice.

The global market for environmental products and services is projected to double from USD 1,370 billion per year to USD 2,740 billion by 2020. Half of this market is in energy efficiency and the balance in sustainable transport, water supply, sanitation and waste management. 2.3 million people have in recent years found new jobs in the renewable energy sector alone. Employment in alternative energies may rise to 2.1 million in wind and 6.3 million in solar power by 2030.

This course will provide you with the skills across the disciplines of science, engineering design and business to be a part of this market and to become leaders and innovators in the context of environmental awareness.

The Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design MSc (with Professional Development) is a 21 month programme – 12 months of study at Brunel, followed by a short break while you await your dissertation grade, to allow you to finalise your placement. Once you've passed your dissertation, you'll complete a six month professional development phase. There is an option to complete the Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design MSc in 12 months without the professional development phase but we’d advise considering the professional development option to achieve the maximum from the programme and to enhance your future career prospects.

Careers and your future

After completing the course you’ll be equipped with the skills to join the huge shift globally towards creating a sustainable society. You may wish to:

  • Start your own green businesses as an entrepreneur and/or designer/innovator.
  • Become a change-maker and leader in an existing business moving towards sustainability.
  • Join a corporate institution or public bodies (e.g. local and regional government, NGOs) as a senior sustainability and environmental coordinator/manager.
  • Become an adviser on sustainable business and policy, sustainable new product development and investment/funding within existing companies, or as a consultant in new business ventures. The latter will include new 'green' product and service enterprises and sustainability service providers
