As Canada’s premier polytechnic institution, we are committed to improving public awareness of living architectural systems, such as green roofs and living walls, and building acoustics, as one of the building sciences, through education and demonstration both locally and globally.
The Centre integrates its research and technology transfer through its diploma and degree programs, as well as academic collaborations, and professional development for the design, architectural and engineering communities.
Courses on acoustics
Currently we offer three acoustics courses to support the master level thesis.
- BSCI 7200 Acoustical Science and Ecology, Bachelor of Interior Design Program. See course outline.
- BSCI 9060 Advanced Acoustics, Building Science Master Degree Programs. See course outline.
- BSCI 9090 Directed Studies, (Psychoacoustics) Building Science Master Degree Programs. See course outline.
Please contact the Building Science Program Office if you have any questions about the three acoustics courses listed above.
Building Smart with Sound Principles and Noise Control in Homes is a three-hour webinar which examines site assessment for noise sources and provide strategies to reduce noise intrusion.
Courses on living architecture
All the courses we offer qualify for professional Learning Units from the Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC), the British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects (BCSLA), and the Planning Institute of British Columbia (PIBC). The courses are held at the Burnaby campus. Follow the course links for description information, including cost, credit values and current news.
