Course Details

Specialized Project (S-PST)

Academic Year 2023/24

BHB014 course is part of 3 study plans

BPC-SI / S Summer Semester 4th year

BKC-SI Summer Semester 4th year

BPA-SI Summer Semester 4th year

The content of the course is focused on particular topics related to the bachelor works of the students attending the course. They are to solve issues related to energy saving and thermal protection of buildings (i.e. assessment of thermal resistance and conductivity designed structures, building envelope), fire safety, building acoustics and daylighting. At the exact same time students are to work on the visual aspects of the building in question, including terrain changes, etc. These topics are to be solved for a simple building with a partial or full basement assigned to the students by their supervisors (detached or semi-detached house with or without an administrative space, residential building, etc.). The outputs of the course as expected are a set of reports and a poster.
