Abstract Humanity is currently experiencing a rapid decline in its environmental and social systems. Disciplines of the built environment contribute to this decline as they have a major impact on the environment through site modification and consumption of natural resource across all aspect of a building's lifecycle. Sustainable buildings and especially the 'intelligent building' are required if we are to decrease the impact of the constructed environment on the natural environment. This can only be achieved if we develop 'intelligent graduates' with an understanding of sustainability principles and capabilities, as they relate to the built environment, and this can only be achieved if they come from 'intelligent' academics.
