Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the necessary basics in the areas of Building Physics, Building Ecology, and Human Ecology.  These knowledge is required for architects to properly react to urgent questions of today's building domain (Energy usage of buildings, occupant's comfort, Performance of building in the hygrothermal, visual, acousticals, and other domains).

A special focus is put on an in-depth understanding of the scientific basics and relevant terminology of the mentioned areas.

Furthermore, students are motivated to train the relevant skills in building physics related domain knowledge.

Moreover, the interfaces to building construction, to regulations, and to technical and design-focused are elaborated within the lecture.
