The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) is located in Wales and has been pioneering sustainability practice in the UK for over 40 years. The courses are run by a community of people with expert knowledge in a range of fields including:
- Low Impact Building
- Renewable Energy Engineering
- Climate Change
- Environmental Science
Students are encouraged to understand environmental solutions through their learning at CAT’s Graduate School of the Environment. The MSc courses allow students a choice of modules with the option to study full time or part time. Courses are studied through a series of residential visits to the Graduate School where you will be required to stay for five nights at a time. This is designed for students to escape daily life and fully immerse themselves into learning new practices.
Whilst students will gain a full experience with guest lecturers attending the five night stays, the course materials can also be accessible online meaning that students can study via distance learning.
