BUILDING SCIENCE I

Course CodeSemester Course Name LE/RC/LA Course Type Language of Instruction ECTS
MIM2020 2 BUILDING SCIENCE I 2/2/0 CC Turkish 4
Course Goals
The aim of the Building Science Courses is to have students develop their understanding of building system, acquire skill in system selection and set up. The aim of the content of Building Science I is having basic information needed during architectural design studio.

Content of the course is analyzing building system and installation systems (plumbing-illumination-communication-heating-ventilation etc.), having the student information about the other sub systems affected to give form to building system during / at the end of architectural design studio will be achieved. The student will have information about the sub systems forming building and functional elements forming subsystems. Historical development of structural systems keeping building standing, principles of structural system; elements of structural system (foundation, column, arch, wall, curtain, beam, advanced structure system technologies, shell structures, cable structures, air supported structures e.t.c) are the basic subjects of this course.
