Sustainability is a key theme that runs through all our work in the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment. We invest our knowledge in impactful research and prepare our students to be at the forefront of change in their future careers.

Sustainability at NTU

At NTU, we’re committed to working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and incorporating social, environmental and economic themes into our learning, teaching and research.

We were one of the first universities in the world to integrate these goals into our curriculum, ensuring that our graduates are equipped with the skills and knowledge to create a brighter, greener, more sustainable future.
