Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Architecture and Sustainable Built Environment

Why study

The PhD in Architecture and Sustainable Built Environment (ASBE) meets an important need in skill and knowledge in the increasingly important area of environmentally responsive design. Operation, energy and policy requirements with sustainable and environmentally conscious practices are becoming an integral part of current thinking as well as future strategies worldwide. This is especially important for this region as most GCC countries are trying to move away from fossil-based economies and to work on establishing a more sustainable future in terms of energy resources and advanced technologies, as well as a healthier and more productive environment. An ASBE graduate will gain knowledge and skills in the areas of sustainable design strategies, advanced energy modelling, urban infrastructure and transport, interior environment, and environmental policy and economics.

Career prospects

An ASBE graduate will have the knowledge, skills and tools needed to critically assess and address a wide range of sustainability related topics. This will allow graduates to make significant contributions in a wide range of industries such as academia, research centres, regulatory and policy making organisations, and private sector management and strategy. The programme is suitable for professionals in related fields such as architecture, building services, urban design, and interior design.
