Architecture and Sustainable Environments
Architects and the designers of our surroundings are the driving force behind the design and development of our built environment.
Whether they are designing new buildings, giving a new lease of life to existing ones, developing urban spaces, landscapes or contemporary interiors, architects have a profound influence on all our lives.
The Kent School of Architecture (KSA) offers a two-year full-time ‘professional’ Master of Architecture (MArch) which gives exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 2 on completion, but, for entry, requires exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 1. The School also offers a research degree programme (PhD) and taught Master’s programmes in Architecture and Cities, Architectural Visualisation and Architecture and Sustainable Environment. These programmes also benefit from expertise in urban studies, animation and art within other schools at Kent.
The programme is aimed at professionals and academics with an interest in sustainability in the built environment, including architects, engineers, geographers, surveyors, historians and urban designers. The MSc promotes a cross-disciplinary approach to research in the field of sustainability in the built environment, bridging the traditional boundaries between architecture and the sciences, research and practice.
The course content ranges from the development of the technical and scientific understanding required to develop sustainable design solutions for new and existing buildings, the analysis of past environment technologies, to a critical exploration of the context of sustainability and environmental design.
The programme may lead to a postgraduate diploma, if taken without the dissertation.
