60 credits within the Bachelor's Programme in Construction Engineering including Building Physics and Fluid and Thermodynamics.
On completion of the course the student shall be able to:
analyse, apply and discuss principles for energy flows in buildings;
discuss and analyse factors that affect indoor climate in buildings,
discuss and analyse alternatives for sustainable energy and environmental technology in the built environment. Analyze and do quantitative sustainability analyses of energy and environmental effects in the built environment.
The basic principles of energy balance in buildings and provides a broader background behind energy flows in nature, as well as how energy and environmental technology can be used to reduce energy needs while providing a good indoor environment. Renewable energy sources, in particular how solar energy can be used, and how smart surface coatings on windows and facades can save both energy and produce positive environmental and health effects and link to the latest research findings in solar energy materials. Use of databases to do sustainability analyses of materials in the built environment and thus predict which steps in material development should be considered for sustainable construction.
Lectures, tutorials, case studies, computer laborations and supervision of project work.
Written home exam. Written and oral presentation of project work.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
