Online Information Session: Advanced Sustainable Design


  • 3.30pm BST

  • Online

Join Programme Director, John Brennan, for an insight into Advanced Sustainable Design - MSc, followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

The Advanced Sustainable Design - MSc programme at Edinburgh College of Art asks how we can transform our built environment by putting sustainable development into practice. We are distinctive in being a design-based programme.

Our emphasis is not only on gaining knowledge of environmental technology, but also on developing skills in synthesising design solutions specific to place, community and habitat. To move beyond purely technical responses, we consider ideas of community, trade, wellbeing, communication and knowledge networks.

One of the great challenges designers face is that of making sense of, and ordering, the enormous volume of information about sustainability. As an Advanced Sustainable Design - MSc student, you will acquire the confidence and experience to create and refine strategies to produce settlements and building proposals that embody high standards of design, as well as demonstrating low carbon behaviour.

Although this master’s degree has architectural design at its heart, we welcome graduates from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. In the past, these have included engineering, art, construction and landscape design.

The session will be delivered using Blackboard Ultra. You will be able to participate in the session and ask questions via text chat or speak to us directly. To book your place, please register through Eventbrite.
