Sustainable Architecture

Learning outcome

Participants in the international MSc programme for Sustainable Architecture will learn to identify and apply the correct measures and resources to design high-quality, cost effective architecture that contributes towards achieving a zero emission built environment.

In a global and European perspective, buildings are accountable for about 40 % of all GHG emissions. IPCC reports point to measures in the building sector as being the most economical (when compared to other important sectors).

The MSc programme aims to educate and train building professionals in the use and development of competitive methods and solutions for existing and new buildings that will contribute to lowering GHG emissions related to the production, use, management, and demolition of architecture in a life-cycle perspective. The Master programme encompasses residential, commercial and public architecture as well as its effect on the urban and rural built environment.
