Principles and applications of building science

By Prof. E. Rajasekar   |   IIT Roorkee
Design and construction professionals require a command on fundamental principles of building physics in order to ensure functional efficiency in the built environments. The course provides a one-stop solution to design/construction industry professionals, students of architecture and engineering disciplines to understand these principles and learn their practical applications. The course comprises of 10 modules which cover climate responsive design of buildings, thermal comfort and energy efficiency, building acoustics and noise control and visual quality and day lighting. The participants will engage in a series of experiential learning modules - involving basic tutorials, animated examples, applied case studies and do-it-yourself exercises.
 

INTENDED AUDIENCE
UG students of Engineering and Architecture ; Design and Construction industry professional

INDUSTRY SUPPORT Design and Construction Firms, Architecture Firms, Construction companies
It can be used as a part of induction course for recruits in design and construction firms.

Learners enrolled: 2251
