Sustainability and Ecology

This programme provides a scientific understanding of the issues surrounding the protection and rehabilitation of nature, whilst maintaining essential or useful ecosystem services.

These new programmes are taught alongside CAT’s existing postgraduate degrees in architecture, energy, sustainability and adaptation, with many of the modules shared with other courses, creating a rich mix of learning opportunities. A range of modules specifically designed for the new programmes will bring together lectures from respected leaders in these areas with CAT’s usual mix of practical, informative, accessible teaching.
