FACULTY OF BUILT AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENT (FBNE)

The urban and rural landscapes we live in have a profound impact on us. They supply us with the essentials – food, water, shelter, clean air – and influence our access to work and education, our safety, and our physical and mental health.

Safeguarding our natural environment whiles building better places to live and work is essential if we want this planet to survive and thrive into the next century. HTU Faculty of Built and Natural Environment therefore engages researchers from across Environmental Science, Architectural Technology, Building Technology and Facilities Management who are working on a range of studies that advance our understanding of the natural and built environment, the connection between the two, and the impact they have in us and our world.

FBNE is the newest addition to the academic divisions of our University. Currently, you can locate the Office of the Dean of Faculty on the Afese Block of the University. The Faculty which was established in January, 2021 is part of the restructuring exercise to conform to changes within the University and to properly align academic work and programs to appropriate and relevant departments for effective academic work.
