The general overview of courses and the name of the courses are shown below. The principle is that you each semester follow 2 specific courses (e.g. energy/comfort + moisture courses the first semester) and then there is a large applied course following in which you work in a small group to apply your knowledge from the 2 “basic” courses for a specific building project (e.g. a passive house the first semester). The first 3 semesters the structure is like this, adding different topics and applying the knowledge in the design of more and more complex buildings. The last semester you carry out your degree project.
The global work market’s need of professionals within this area is obvious due to environmental risks and increasingly demanding building regulations. There is a need of developments and skills related to energy-efficient building design, with professionals who can rapidly lead the building industry and municipalities into a sustainable future. As a graduate from this Master’s programme, you will be able to work in design teams responsible for energy and environmental issues, and take the lead as key person in companies and municipalities pursuing energy and environmental aspects with a whole-building perspective in mind. You will also be eligible to pursue your studies at the doctoral level.
