Learning outcomes

Graduate will acquire basic knowledge in the field of advance simulations of parametres of indoor environment and physical properties of building structures. In addition, he will be able to verify these parameters under real operation of buildings. The graduate will be able to:
- create model of building structures,
- define technical systems of buidling,
- simulate quality of indoor environment,
- perform multicriteria analysis,
- perform measurement of physical values in finished buildings.


Theory of thermal engineering, building acoustics, daylighting and insolation of buildings at a level of master study.


Knowledge of the use of specialized software tools for computer simulations.

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.

Forms and criteria of assessment

Successful conclusion of the course requiers:
- participation in consultations,
- elaboration of all assignments.


The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the requirements and assessment methods of indoor environment quality in buildings with respect to thermal protection, daylighting and insolation, acoustic properties of constructions and buildings and analysis of fire hazard.
