MSc in Sustainable Energy and Environment

Cardiff University
Campus Full time August 2017 United Kingdom Cardiff

Climate change is claimed by many authoritative figures, including the UK Chief Scientific Adviser, to be the greatest threat to our planet this century. [+]

MSc Programs in Natural Sciences. MSc in Sustainable Energy and Environment Climate change is claimed by many authoritative figures, including the UK Chief Scientific Adviser, to be the greatest threat to our planet this century. There is a considerable body of evidence that now relates climate change to the global consumption of energy, and in particular, the use of fossil fuels to provide heat, power and transportation. Moreover, as supplies of fossil fuels reduce and become concentrated in fewer global regions, security of supply worldwide becomes increasingly challenging, particularly given the current growth in world population. The threat of international terrorism exacerbates fuel supply issues, and the introduction of new technologies presents new risks, real and perceived, technical and financial, which require careful management. The nuclear debate continues, clean coal technology presents new opportunities for a traditional fuel, and what proportion of supply can we anticipate from renewables? It is clear that a cross-disciplinary, international, systems approach to developing solutions to these long-term problems is required, to ensure the sustainability of our planet. This will require graduates who are capable of thinking and working across and on the interface of traditional disciplines, and working effectively in multi-disciplinary project teams; Training such graduates is the primary aim of this new, research-led, multi-disciplinary MSc course. There are possibilities to integrate or develop the learning experience through existing and developing international collaborations (e.g. Ecole de Mines, Nantes; ENEL, Pisa,). Accreditation This MSc is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering and the Institute... [-]

MSc in Architecture and Environmental Design

University of Westminster - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2  September 2017 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This interdisciplinary and international course will provide you with skills that can be applied to diverse building typologies and global climatic, environmental and contextual issues. On completion of this course you will have a thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of environmental design and will develop critical thinking skills to challenge established practices. [+]

The global environmental and energy challenge facing current and future generations of architects and building professionals calls for a deeper understanding of the principles of environmental design, and their effective application into architectural practice worldwide. Over the last decades environmental design as a subject area has developed, responding to new research and experimentation, both in academia and in practice. However, buildings claiming to be environmentally conscious do not perform to the expected standards, still heavily contributing to global CO2 emissions and often providing unsatisfactory comfort conditions to occupants. The same can be said for the existing built environment which is largely outdated and underperforming, requiring urgent implementation of effective retrofit strategies. This is due to a lack of comprehensive performance prediction and feedback protocols, which are still not common practice in architectural design. Course content Students on this course will take a fresh critical look at this subject. Here you will gain the knowledge and tools to make informed design decisions based on post-occupancy feedback and performance analysis, towards a new paradigm of environmental architecture, which is environmentally and energy conscious, yet sensitive to the contextual and socio-cultural landscape we live in. You will learn environmental design methods which relate to the various stages of architectural design. You will be able to evaluate existing buildings and design new ones following a combined bioclimatic and building occupant focused approach. In the core design modules you will follow an evidence based design approach where the acquisition of specialised software and analytical tools... [-]
