Master’s Degree in Environmental Design and Management of Buildings.
The Master in Environmental Management and Buliding Design from University of Navarra is a postgraduate program which aims at training experts in design and environmental construction; through broad and deep knowledge in sustainability and environmental issues applied to buildings. This will allow them to face big changes that are taking place in the building sector nowadays. Building construction is producing great impact over the environment due to the consumption of natural resources such as energy, materials, water, etc and then producing emissions, waste, spillage and so on. This impact is forcing the adoption of new objectives and efficient measures in design and building construction in order to diminish the environmental issues related with them. The latest regulations that are being applied in the sector go from the European directives (energetic certification, buildings with no emissions, etc) and the Kyoto Protocol, to the national ones (Technical code for Building, wastes) in order to apply these objectives. Currently we talk about the environmental cost of buildings in terms of kilograms of CO2, towards the economic cost. All of this leads to a great complexity in these types of projects and therefore, specialization is required in these fields.
