Innovative Home Design and Construction - Teesside University

**Course overview**: This course develops and innovates new approaches to home design, fabrication and construction to inspire the next generation of home designers and innovators. It is ideal if you have an interest in design or STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, maths). Through a unique partnership with renowned and respected TV architect George Clarke, this course explores new models of home design, fabrication and construction. You are guided through a detailed exploration of methods of construction, such as using off-site manufacture and prefabrication, alternative building materials, and building project locations. You have an opportunity to develop concept models and construct scale models of your designs on campus. George Clarke’s social enterprise, the Ministry of Building, Innovation and Education (MOBIE), is kickstarting a fundamental change to the building industry and our courses have been designed to adhere closely to the modular building concept and advanced home construction principles of MOBIE. In collaboration with MOBIE, this pioneering course brings together design and engineering modules - you spend time drawing architectural plans, designing, model making, creating 3D prototypes and learning how this translates into large-scale manufacture. You emerge as a uniquely qualified graduate equipped to disrupt the housing market and rethink manufacturing design. **After the course**: The need for us to design well-built, affordable homes is massive and the construction industry is changing quickly. It was recently announced that Amazon and Google are starting to invest in the home building market. It isn’t just a national change, it’s international - and over the next few years amazing job opportunities are expected to be available for graduates of these courses. Graduates also have the opportunity to progress to our MSc Advanced Home Futures.
