This MSc aims to improve the energy, health and environmental performance of new and existing buildings. It provides a sound training in environmental design fundamentals, focussing on critical issues of CO2 emissions and pollution from the fossil fuel consumed by buildings, and the impact on occupant health and the environment. What and how will I learn? The programme aims to develop student's knowledge and expertise in problem solving in the area of the built environment, and provide a framework for developing innovative thinking in the design and operation of buildings, placing associated environmental issues in a global, national and personal context. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of seven core courses (105 credits), one optional course (15 credits) and a built environment report (60 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered. Core Modules The Built Environment: The Energy Context Health and Comfort in Buildings Building Solar Design Natural and Mechanical Ventilation of Buildings The Lit Environment Efficient Building Services Systems Methods of Environmental Analysis Dissertationreport All MSc students submit a 10,000 word report on a topic related to the main themes of the programme. The topic can be chosen to enhance career development or for its inherent interest. Options Energy Management and the Control of Noise Faculty of the Built Environment Course Further details available on subject website: http:www.bartlett.ucl.ac.ukgraduateprogrammesmsc_beede_overview.htm The programme is delivered through a combination of interactive seminars, individual and group tutorials, site visits and a residential field trip. Assessment is through unseen examination, coursework, and the built environment report. Joint coursework, including two major low-energy architectural design projects, is carried out by students in multidisciplinary teams. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The Bartlett is the UK's largest multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, bringing together scientific and professional specialisms required to research, understand, design, construct and operate the buildings and urban environments of the future. Located in London, it is at the heart of a large cluster of creative architects and engineering firms, next to the UK's seat of government and finance and has all the resources of a world city to hand. The architecture coming out of the Bartlett is characterised by a high level of invention and creativity. The school is internationally known as a centre for innovative design. Your future career Most students who complete the programme move into, or continue in, a building-related profession, such as architecture, low-energy design consultancy, or building services engineering. As the awareness of global environmental issues increases, the demand for people with expertise in the health and energy performance of buildings is expanding rapidly. A number of students have used the MSc as a foundation for MPhilPhD research. First destinations of recent graduates include: Dedra: Civil Engineer Idas Architects: Sustainability Co-ordinator WSP: Environmental Energy Consultant Mott MacDonald Ltd: Mechanical Engineer Built Environment Consultants Ltd: Architect WSP: Sustainability Consultant Entry Requirements The normal minimum qualifications are a second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an equivalent standard overseas qualification. A second acceptable qualification is corporate membership of one of the following UK professional institutions: the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). A third acceptable qualification is a degree of lo
