Master of Science in High Performance Buildings (Limited Extended Call, from the 22nd to 26th July 2019)

The Master of Science in High Performance Buildings (HPB) gives candidates the opportunity to develop optimized building concepts, integrating various components of holistic design methodology, building physics, building climatology and comfort, energy-efficiency, environmental sources, building services systems, building aerodynamics, thermal and fluid dynamic CFD simulations, lighting design, building operation, as well as green urban modelling. The programme provides for advanced skills in specialization and scientific research of building physics coupled with architectural design, preparing students for professional, as well as research and development settings at national and international levels.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this Masters Programme the participants will be able to: design holistically in order to unify passive and active building technology solutions and to integrate building into a larger context; responding to, and take advantage of, current environmental circumstances, potentials and synergies; integrate special aspects of HPB-related physics and design methods into the regular planning procedure; think as engineers of the various corresponding fields involved in design and construction, thus being enable to act as an interface between design participants; strengthen the dialogue between the various professional disciplines, coordinating them in accordance with desired HPB project goals.
