  • Form-finding in Building Design 5 ECTS
  • Tectonics in Engineering and Archuctural design 5 ECTS


Indoor Climate and Energy

The primary reason for human kind to make buildings is to achieve a healthy, productive and comfortable environment for long term stay – a good indoor environment. A good indoor environment is functional, aesthetically pleasing and have a good indoor climate. This research group focus on research and teaching in methods, tools and technologies for energy-efficient design and operation of buildings with high quality of indoor climate (i.e. thermal comfort, high air quality and good daylighting conditions).
​Prerequisites: BSc in engineering, or equivalent, with a substantial degree of specialization related to building physics (heat transfer and moisture transport) and building services (heating, ventilation, air  conditioning and cooling).

  • Energy-efficient Building Envelope Design 5 ECTS
  • Indoor Climate 5 ECTS
  • Simulation of Building Energy Systems 5 ECTS

Structural Analysis and Concrete Structures

Students in structural engineering must know how structures can be designed using physically transparent models. Energy principles and the theory of plasticity offers such approaches, and a central part of these  course therefore regards the application of the theories and understanding of the inherent advantages as well as limitations.
​Prerequisites: The students are required to have a bachelor degree in civil engineering with a specialization in structural engineering.
