Recommended Prerequisites

Building Physics /Constructions Materials.

Teaching Methods

Lectures aimed to the systematization and organization of knowledge and methodological approaches.

The theoretical and practical classes- although there are no clearly difference from them - intended for the analysis of case studies presented by the students in the light of knowledge and adopted methodology.

 Students will develop a small project based on the observation of real situations that they will propose.

Learning Outcomes

Provide the students with knowledge of building technology to enable them to:

- Design, calculate and define conditions for the implementation of primary elements of construction (walls, roofs, floors and glazing) due to functional requirements and that can identify and adapt to different situations.

- Know the different types of building materials available for building facades, roofs, floors and glazing with the identification of its characteristics and its technological constraints of use.

Work Placement(s)

No
