The MSc, or Master of Science, is an internationally recognized academic degree that indicates proficiency and knowledge of a given topic or field. Most MSc programs take about four years to finish, after which some join the workforce while others continue on in the classroom.
Building technology is a field focused on innovation and aesthetics. This education can provide passionate students with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in an increasingly environmentally conscious society faced with efficiency concerns and a growing demand for structures.
This is a multidisciplinary course that aims to develop the knowledge, practical, and personal skills of graduates to work in the Architecture/Engineering/Construction (A
Why this course?
The need for advanced technologies has become necessary to accomplish sustainable engineering projects, especially for the construction industry. Various Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT) have emerged over the last decades. With the development of Building Information Modelling, the future of construction will be transformed into a more digital industry.
Various Advanced Construction Technologies are now BIM compliant across stages such as:
preparation of the client brief
conceptual and detailed design
construction and operational
These developments have provided technical and management support to solve complex and multidisciplinary problems for all project stakeholders....

Master of Science in Built Environment (By Research)
The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Built Environment programme is designed to provide students with a formal qualification in built environment at the master’s level. Through the programme, professionals and graduates would be equipped with technical knowledge and skill required in the Built Environment sector. The programme also serves as an opportunity and pathway to pursue the Ph.D. in Built Environment and other relevant fields.
Preparing students to be competent for research and development in specific areas of Built Environment.
Development of students’ intellectual ability through research and successful application of advanced tools and techniques that will support their professional development.
The flexibility of research projects: academics, professional, industrial, etc.

The increasing drive towards low carbon and sustainable solutions in the built environment has introduced a need for built environment professionals who can take a holistic view of the sustainability debate. This programme will combine the technical design and engineering issues associated with the delivery of sustainable built environments with an appreciation for how such approaches can be justified in a commercially focused world.
The programme considers passive (building fabric) and active measures (building services and renewable energy technologies) setting out what approach may be taken when considering new build or, as is becoming increasingly important the existing building stock. Students will gain the skills needed to assess these options on a whole life basis with an appreciation for how the financial and business case can be made for such approaches....

This new two year MSc course is made up of two semesters of taught modules followed by a year-long project. Wherever possible, the project will be undertaken in collabora
This programme aims to provide you with an extension to your previous studies and the opportunity to put into practise what you have learnt in an extended industrially relevant research project to enable you to gain employment as professional engineers in this field. In order to provide flexibility, the course also offers a wide range of optional modules.
You will gain experience of the types of problems encountered by academic and industrial researchers, both via taught courses and project work. Written presentations will be undertaken at various stages of the course.
A substantial extended individual project will be undertaken, developing your ability to engage in independent learning, and preparing you for postgraduate research or careers in industry. The project will form the basis of your written dissertation. You will also develop your ability to think logically and critically, to acquire problem-solving skills, to become competent users of relevant equipment and software, and to communicate results effectively....

This course looks at how renewable and sustainable energy technologies can create environmentally friendly buildings.
The MSc Sustainable Building Technology is specifically tailored towards graduates in building services, architectural environmental engineering, architecture and other related disciplines.
The course is carefully structured to accommodate the interests and skills of those who are related to building design and technology and building energy and environmental performance.
The strong emphasis is targeted to a successful integration of renewable and sustainable energy technologies into buildings, which requires an understanding of both design and technology and hence the close co-operation of architecture and engineering.
As part of its remit, the Department of Architecture and Built Environment aims to develop your vocational skills and the environmentally responsible attitude necessary in today’s rapidly changing world.
The department enjoys strong collaborative links with overseas institutions.
This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers.
The Master's Programme in Building Technology offers comprehensive academic and professional education in a variety of disciplines within civil and structural engineering
The Master's Programme in Building Technology offers comprehensive academic and professional education in a variety of disciplines within civil and structural engineering.
Civil engineering plays a key role in creating safe and healthy built environments. Combining the global needs for energy efficiency and sustainability with the characteristics of a good living environment requires theoretical understanding, professional skills and a broad perspective.
The Master’s Programme in Building Technology deals with the design, construction, use, and maintenance of civil engineering structures, such as buildings and bridges. With its four main topics – structural engineering, building performance, construction management and mineral-based materials – the programme offers knowledge and skills for future careers in industry, research, education or government bodies. Based on your individual choices, you may specialise in topics like indoor air quality, repair and maintenance, fire safety engineering, energy efficiency, and building services....

Mission and goals
The operational areas addressed by this Master of Science programme may be summarised in two skill profiles, gravitating around the economic-financial management (asset and property management) and technical-operational support services for the built-up environment management (facility management) areas.
The objective of the course is to transmit to the student knowledge and skills in building technology and construction, in production and management engineering, in law, in economics, in information technology, and in land planning; to provide methods and tools to be used for technical-economic evaluation on purchase or on designing the requalification of buildings. ...
