The Building Energy Modelling and Simulation microcredential aims to prepare students to become professional “energy modellers” who are competent in performing whole building energy simulations, and applying them to different stages of building design, operations and renovations – all within less than a year.
About the program
The first course, Building Energy Modelling and Simulation Fundamentals, introduces the learner to what energy modelling is, how to obtain model inputs and apply them successfully to be able to present end results. The second course, Advanced Building Performance Simulation, builds on the first course, adding the knowledge of modelling mechanical building systems (HVAC). The third course, High Performance Building Design – Project Course, consists of a capstone project where the content learned in the first two courses is applied and competency is demonstrated. Emphasis is placed on using energy modelling and simulation for decision making by design professionals.
Who it’s for
Designed for working professionals interested in seeking a new learning pathway in building energy modelling, the new microcredential is intended for learners with prior education and/or relevant work experience, as well as those who have an analytical mindset and are detail-oriented.
What grads can do
This microcredential will help prepare you for a career as Building Energy Performance Consultant and Energy Modelling Expert.
In response to industry needs, this microcredential provides people seeking careers like Building energy performance consultants (Energy Modelers) with a new learning pathway.
