Course CodeSemester Course Name LE/RC/LA Course Type Language of Instruction ECTS
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. Information about the development of industrialization in building production and various building systems especially according to the building envelope is given by profesisonals in seminars. It is also aimed to gain the ability of integrating all the systems learned, studio work follow seminars in order to transfer the information into practice. Students gain skill to select and integrate advanced systems  by making their own detailed design projects.
