Significant social, economic and environmental changes are creating a growing demand for high-performance and sustainable buildings. Advancements in science and technology make it feasible to design, construct, and operate buildings that are ever more diverse in function and shape as well as more energy-efficient and responsive to occupants’ needs.
Students in the graduate program Building Science and Technology at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning learn how to apply scientific methods and state-of-the-art technologies in order to address the multi-faceted challenges posed by high-performance and sustainable buildings.
