This four-year Bachelor of Science (Building Science) (Honours) degree prepares you to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to optimise the performance of buildings by bridging all facets of building design, construction, human comfort and sustainability.
Opportunities for applied and hands-on experiences with building materials, components and systems are woven throughout the program of study.
The program integrates theoretical and applied learning environments to provide opportunities for you to experience current and emerging technologies that support both the construction and operation of buildings.
This program responds to a critical need to prepare professionals with a better understanding of building physics, which is the core of the program.
Throughout the program, you will develop the scientific mindset required to engage in scientific inquiry, reason in a scientific context and provide evidence-based approaches and solutions.
You will also hone the skills and abilities needed to address the fact that buildings are becoming ever-increasingly more complex.
This is driven by the continuously growing demand for increased energy efficiency, comfort, structural durability and healthy environments.
You will develop abilities to recognize, forecast and document both successful and poor building performance as well as analytical skills to evaluate the impact of each component in the system and identify potential problems or potential opportunities for improved performance.
