Help humanity work with, instead of against, the natural world

In what ways do man-made buildings and systems contribute to climate change and environmental distruction? How can we design structures which sustain our natural world, and even help it recover? These are some of the most urgent questions currently facing humanity and essential for our futures. Studying Sustainable Engineering is a path to the forefront of modern-day engineering, as we aim to leave behind a carbon-based economy and become more creative and efficient in producing our energy and consuming our products. You will also look at the ingenious technology that is working to clean up the pollution we have already created and start to put your design skills to the test in developing your own solutions to current environmental problems.

Cambridge is filled with beautifully engineered structures and buildings from a range of historical periods up until the present day. You will also be learning in a city filled with green spaces, where nature and the city live side by side.

From age 16 to 24, our Sustainable Engineering summer courses in Cambridge are designed to suit your level of experience.
