MSc Facade Engineering

We are delighted to announce that a new MSc is Facade Engineering will start in September 2017 at the University of the West of England (UWE).

Facade engineering has really developed over the past decade. As buildings grow more complex, as performance targets become more stringent, and as new materials and processes are developed, the role of the professional facade engineer will continue to become ever more important.

The programme is being developed by CWCT with input from the facade industry. Units studied include:


  • Materials and components,
  • Weathertightness,
  • Thermal performance,
  • Glass and glazing,
  • Procurement,
  • Facade construction,

This is the only specialised facade engineering course in the UK. It is available as both full-time (1 year) and part-time (2+ years) study. Study on individual modules is also available.
