A new beginning for the IDBE Masters course

It's a relief to hear that after months of speculation, IDBE has found a new home....

Starting in September 2017, the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership will run the IDBE programme.  The course continues to be supported by the University of Cambridge's Departments of Engineering and Architecture and many of the academic staff from both departments will be involved in the teaching and supervision of students.  

This is a two-year part-time Master's course for professionals who are already working in the built environment.  It is unusual in that it is truly interdisciplinary, allowing the students to explore the challenges they face in the real world in a rigorous academic setting. 

On past courses, the students have split roughly a third architects, a third structural and civil engineers, and a third ‘other’. The 'others' have included quantity surveyors, highways engineers, environmentalists, conservationists, clients, estate managers, developers, contractors, building surveyors, planners and construction lawyers. 

The course explores the global challenges facing the industry and examine emerging trends and opportunities within the built environment. It is highly interactive and collaborative... and comes highly recommended by past students and their employers!  

Applications for September 2017 close on 30 June 2017.  For further information visit: http://www.idbe.arct.cam.ac.uk...
