Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

The aim of this Mini-Project, based at the University of Manchester, was to produce guidance for Engineering schools in designing modules or threads to embed sustainable development within the curriculum. The project undertook a modified ‘Delphi’ study to bring convergence of the views of experts from a range of engineering disciplines on sustainable development in the engineering curriculum
