MSCI-381 Green Building Science

3 Credits

To achieve a sustainable future, we need buildings that provide for our comfort and security while imposing a far smaller impact on the environment than do today’s building. This course will use many techniques of physical science to see how this can be done, both in new construction and in today’s built environment. An introduction to climate science is also included. Each student will carry out a detailed energy assessment of an actual building.
