The course introduces students to the theoretical knowledge of aspects of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in relation to the energy performance of buildings. During the lectures, the basic principles of technical systems of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, water management and electricity supply and the different components of the indoor environment are presented and described. The lectures are complemented by seminars where students learn about the development of the HVAC concept and have a hands-on experience with IEQ measurement and evaluation.


The conditions for the award of credit, requirements and the course of the examination are listed on the course website in the Moodle system.

Study Objective:

Course Objectives:

- Understanding the principles of sustainable building design: students will be able to identify and apply the basic principles of sustainable building design and energy efficiency.

- Mastering advanced HVAC technologies.

- Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Management: Students will gain skills in the management and assessment of indoor environmental quality, including aspects such as thermal comfort, visual and acoustic design and psychological well-being.

- Application of IEQ assessment methods: Students will learn and be able to apply indoor environmental quality assessment methods with an emphasis on building performance assessment.

- Hands-on experience in measuring and evaluating IEQ: Students will gain hands-on experience in measuring and evaluating indoor environmental quality using a variety of measurement instruments and standard procedures.

-Analytical and Critical Thinking: Students will be able to analyze and critically evaluate IEQ assessment results and propose measures to improve indoor environmental quality in buildings.

- Independent Work and Presentation: Students will be able to work independently on semester projects involving IEQ assessments and designing improvement measures in various types of buildings. They will be able to present their results and conclusions.

- Active participation in class: Students will actively participate in class through discussions, exercises and practical seminars, which will help them to better understand and apply the concepts discussed.

These objectives will be achieved through a combination of lectures, practical seminars, independent work and discussions covering a wide range of topics related to sustainable building design, energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality.
