Topics in Sustainable Building Science

This course is the introductory course for students in the Sustainable Building Science Program.Emphasis will be on providing a high-level conceptual/qualitative understanding of sustainability and the building design and construction processes and players, the integration and inter-dependency of the various building systems and their designs, the potential conflicts between them, and how this understanding can inform design decisions to create buildings exhibiting a higher level of performance, including a high level of sustainability. See more

Project Course in Sustainable Building Science

Trainees select a project involving the design of a real or hypothetical building, and work in small, interdisciplinary teams. Campus-based projects will be coordinated through the Social, Ecological and Economic Development Studies (SEEDS) program administered by UBC; this will ensure that all completed work will be available to inform decisionmaking on campus-development project work. See more
