Level 3 Design, Engineer, Construct
Staff, Teaching & Learning
"Students enter undergraduate programmes in Architecture from a wide range of backgrounds. However is is rare that they have had experience of the building design process, or that they have an understanding of the range of applied sustainability issues that need to be addressed in contemporary architectural practice. The DEC! curriculum provides a meaningful insight into both of these."
