prerequisites and co-requisites


course contents

Students learn to work with basic concepts of meteorology and structural physics. Energy efficiency and the insulation of the building envelope are classified based on construction and materials methods from which the systematics of the energy passport are extrapolated. The practical implementation of this course content and the handling of various data formats is tested with table calculations and graphics software based on exercises.
