Course content

As we head towards zero carbon buildings, we need to better understand how buildings should be constructed and the materials we should use in their construction in order to increase their energy efficiency.

Whether you are a graduate with a degree in a built environment subject or already work in the construction industry and want to upskill for a promotion or new construction role, we will teach you how to analyse the performance of existing buildings and design and model new energy-efficient buildings.

You will gain an understanding of building physics and performance, including how buildings respond to weather, how to heat buildings efficiently and how bricks, mortar, timber and insulants act as thermal barriers.
