15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module aims to enable students to create designs which meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (environmental, social and economic). The module aims to engage students in a range of sustainable design tools through lectures, seminars and research in small groups. Group research is shared with other students through student led presentations. The development of sustainable design knowledge in this module culminates in a final multidisciplinary, group project, devising a plan to regenerate a local area sustainably. This will involve fieldwork to survey the site.

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to Level 7 students registered on associated programmes.
