create an inclusive sustainable world

Every single person alive today is shaped by their environment. You're about to help build better ones.

Whether you're creating the buildings of the future, connecting our smart cities, or building more inclusive digital worlds, we'll put you in control. You'll learn the foundations, so you can explore the possibilities.

Leeds is a historic city, embracing the future. So you'll get to see what's come before, and work with today's employers to design what's next. And you'll learn from experienced industry professionals, researching ideas that will transform how we see our homes, our communities, and our surroundings.

Change the landscape, and you'll change the world.

My course provided me with strong foundations to build an exciting career in construction. Seven years later, I am still working at the company that gave me that placement, having qualified as an MRICS Chartered Building Surveyor two years after graduating.
