Course Introduction

Why study this course?

Our Environmental, Sustainable and Regeneration Design MA degree will prepare you for employment in this exciting and expanding field of design.

This is a multidisciplinary course that deploys knowledge and practice from a range of fields, including social science, design and technology. You?ll focus on creating sustainable designs based on research, especially for systems, product, interior, environmental, urban and community-based projects.

More about this course

Governments, companies and individuals around the world are realising that instead of being a cost and burden, environmental, regeneration and sustainable design is not only essential to the survival of our civilisations; it is also an opportunity for designers and businesses to use skilful and imaginative design.

It is because of this realisation that many national and local governments, as well as large design practices, now employ staff identified by one or more of these specialisms.

The field of environmental, sustainable and regenerative design is diverse and hybrid, allowing those with a wide range of interests and abilities to contribute. You may design environments or systems, products or behaviours ? but all of them will contribute to the safety, wellbeing and sustainability of the world.

You will engage in live projects for real-world clients to ensure that your understanding of the sector, and how your interests and talents match the opportunities available, is accurate and up-to-date. The course team and their industry connections will ensure that you have first-hand experience of the challenges that environmental, sustainability and regeneration designers face, embedded in the vibrant world of London?s creative sectors and businesses.

Assessment

You'll assessed via a portfolio of your project work and essays.

After the course

Following the MA you could seek opportunities as an environmental designer, strategist, urban design specialist or regeneration consultant or planner.
