The Built Environment

content

The Built Environment refers to the technical and creative designs and techniques used in the construction of domestic and commercial buildings, infrastructure - including bridges and roads - and renewable energy schemes.

In this area of study, students explore topics around designing and building projects which are sustainable, attractive, safe and of high quality.

Specifically, they look at how to plan and design projects and how to use technology to create buildings, structures and infrastructure to meet the needs of a growing economy. Students will learn how to survey and model projects to assess feasibility, create concept ideas and designs to solve problems and apply the latest technical solutions to create innovative and sustainable structures.

All our Building Environment programmes have a strong focus on teamwork and leadership to produce work ready, professional graduates, with all programmes delivered around the core themes of creativity, sustainability, problem solving, communication, health and safety, quality and commercial viability.
