Starting from the next academic year 2018-2019, it will provided the Bachelor Degree in Sustainable Building Engineering (L23 Class), aimed to make students familiar with the knowledge and the skills which can ensure a sustainable future, both to existing buildings and to those, they will design and build, achieving the goal of sustainable development, which is the real challenge of our era, through the application of the following principles:

  • Lowering the energy demand and consumption of existing and new buildings
  • Taking advantage of climate and natural resources to develop passive design strategies and sustainable architecture
  • Reusing or recycling building components and materials
  • Extending the lifetime of products and buildings
  • Risk-free returning materials to the natural cycle
  • Adopting a sustainable use of the environment and a participatory planning and design
  • Reducing urban sprawl, promoting urban renewal and protecting natural areas
  • Planning, designing and building with respect to natural constraints

Targets of this course is also the acquisition of analytical skills for recognizing, understanding, planning and designing under complex environmental conditions.

At the end of this course, the Sustainable Building Engineer will be able to deal with the many complex problems of building engineering, starting from the design and going on with works management, with a special sensitivity to environmental protection and environmental risks prevention.
