  • Content and learning outcomes

    The 4th semester, materials will introduce you to theories and methods of Life Cycle Assesment and sustainable building technology.

    By meeting the objectives of this topic you will have gained knowledge and understanding of:
    • CLT technology
    • Sustainable insulation materials
    • H2O and building physics
    • Function and properties of materials in relation to standard constructions.

    By meeting the objectives of this topic you will be able to:
    • Chose materials with relevant properties in relating to its function in the construction.
    • Ability to choose sustainable materials based on Global Warming Potential.

  • Type of instruction
    The teaching is based on the understanding that learning is most efficient if students are given the opportunity to work with real-life assignments from, or inspired by, companies in relevant industries.
    When choosing a project, the possibility of incorporating the academic and professional challenges throughout the semester into the project must be taken into account.
    The students are given the opportunity to be involved in the various project phases, from preliminary analysis to realisation of the project. In connection with the project work, the students are faced with real-life problems to be solved based on the given theory, and are to organise the work in such a way that deadlines can be met. The students are furthermore provided with the necessary qualifications to work independently, thereby preparing them to complete the final project as an individual assignment.
    This working method allows the students to gain an understanding of how problems are identified and analysed, how solution models are set up, and how the right solution is adopted.
