Building energy modelling and performance analysis is a process of creating virtual models which are capable of simulating the important thermal dynamics of the building and energy performance characteristics of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
The program is offered via part-time studies (PTS) course-by-course registration. The aim of this program is to prepare graduates as proficient building energy modellers and to improve the state of practice among current industry practitioners.
The primary target audience is building industry practitioners with a diploma or degree in a relevant field who are interested in learning about or updating their knowledge and skills in building energy modelling and performance analysis. Graduates of this program are expected to be hired as building energy performance analysts, building energy modelling (BEM) managers or BEM specialists.
The building-industry relevant field includes architectural design, interior design, construction management, environment engineering, renewable and sustainable energy engineering, building HVAC system technology, electrical engineering and lighting design, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and civil engineering.
Subject to departmental approval and course availability, applicants who satisfy the admission requirements may take no more than two courses for professional development without having to first apply to the program. Professional development students must satisfy the prerequisites for any course. All applications are reviewed by the department to ensure candidates are suited for success in the course.
Graduates of this program are expected to be hired as building energy performance analysts, BEM managers or BEM specialists.
