Multi-criteria analysis of the requirements for the indoor environment and the function of the systems in different types of buildings and plants and optimization criteria for the design of energy and ecological building systems. Relationships between building technical equipment and the building. Integrated view of conceptual solutions in different building types in terms of indoor systems and building design. E.g. office buildings, residential buildings, halls, shopping centres, cultural centres, industrial buildings, sports buildings, family houses, passive etc. The audience will be introduced to the requirements for the indoor environment, the characteristic elements of energy and environmental building systems in relation to the structural design for the building type.


The exam consists of 2 written online tests in the A233 computer room in the MS Teams environment (it is necessary to know your login data to KOS) and an oral part. The first test has 10 multiple choice questions from the HVAC and KPS problem areas - if the student answers at least 5 questions correctly (50%), he/she continues with the second test which has 5 questions from the lecture topics, which he/she answers in his/her own words. This is followed by an oral part, where additional questions may be asked and a classification based on the results of the tests and the response to the questions will take place.

Syllabus of lectures:

*Energy-optimised solutions for buildings and their technical systems, wider context. Principles of design of technical building systems with regard to environmental quality and energy performance.
