Course Description

MSc Conservation of Buildings defines and explores the concepts and practicalities of conservation, restoration and preservation, including the suitability of repairing, maintaining, servicing, adapting and strategically managing heritage buildings. It also considers historic construction and repair techniques and the decisions we need to make today to ensure the appropriate longevity of our built heritage. Conservation philosophy, legislative framework, scientific understanding, and awareness of the importance of regional vernacular styles and materials are all at the heart of our course. The aims of our course are to: develop your vision and understanding of what is required when undertaking the conservation of buildings; equip you with specialist conservation knowledge; provide study that will foster, inspire and enhance your technical, personal and inter-personal skills; develop your leadership skills, ability to evaluate challenging situations and produce solutions to problems. You will absorb the academic, philosophical and technical aspects of building conservation, together with the underlying legislative and economic background, designed to produce competent consultants, advisors and practitioners. Staff will have enhanced knowledge and skills of up-to-date building conservation practice, heritage management, academic awareness, and strength in networking.
