Synopsis:

Garant: Prof. Dr. Ir. Jan Hensen

After completion of the course the students will: comprehend the (increasing) complexity of building energy/environmental systems; have an insight into how computer modelling and simulation is a viable approach to building performance prediction; be aware of the theoretical and operational principles underlying advanced building performance simulation software; possess practical skills in using the technology in a design support context.
