About this course

The program is tailored for design and built environment professionals seeking to deepen their knowledge and skills in sustainable design. As a sustainability specialist you can choose from a range of career pathways across the built environment. Most units of study are taught in intensive block modes over several full days. With extensive experience analysing and controlling the physical phenomena affecting buildings, practitioners of Architectural Science have a profound impact on the function, aesthetics and efficiency of architectural spaces. Sustainable Design professionals are responsible for developing efficient and environmentally responsive buildings, and retrofitting existing buildings to meet today's environmental demands. Sustainable designers are critical to ensuring that the plans on paper become a reality during and after construction. In the Sustainable Design program, your skills in sustainable design are enhanced through the Faculty's expertise in the built environment. Our `first principlesapproach enables you not just to perform energy analyses and building assessments, but also to critique and develop further the tools and approaches required for sustainable building. Your research-leading lecturers take you on site visits and expose you to a range of international collaborators. We leverage our extensive links with industry to bring you internship opportunities with leading businesses and consultancies. And you can use a wide range of electives to pursue your interests in the application of sustainable design theories and methods in architecture, planning, urban design, building services and facilities management. The Graduate Certificate will provide you with a foundation for the more intensive theoretical and practical work undertaken in the graduate diploma.
