Circular Economy Leadership for the Built Environment

Master of Science in Circular Economy Leadership for the Built Environment - Level 9
Overview
This Masters in Circular Economy Leadership for the Built Environment has been developed in close collaboration with construction industry professionals to provide a flexible, multidisciplinary and industry-focused programme that seeks to address the current competency and skills gap in the construction sector both nationally and in a global context.

The programme is designed to embrace experiential and collaborative learning opportunities by continuously embedding evolving circular economy best practice through an academic-industry reciprocal learning framework.

The construction sector is currently undergoing a significant transformation, catalysed by EU and national policy and strategy drivers, which are challenging stakeholders to review their business models and working practices to move beyond traditional linear processes and lead the transition towards preventative and more restorative circular processes of reuse, recycling and disassembly that will stimulate growth and improve competitiveness.

Participants on the course will discover a focused set of mandatory modules that cover all stages in the design-construction-operation and end-of-life process, that will address the competency, capability and skills requirements of the multiple supply chain stakeholders.
