Sustainable Building Engineering LM24

Starting from Academic Year 2020-2021 it will be given in Rieti, the Master’s Programme (second cycle – 120 ECTS) Sustainable Building Engineeringaimed to educate a Master Engineer, aware of the goals of the Agenda for Sustainable Development released by United Nations, with a specific relationship to building engineering, such as:

  • to develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient buildings; to upgrade them and retrofit industries to make them sustainable;
  • to facilitate sustainable and resilient city and territory development; to reduce the number of deaths and the number of people affected by disasters, including water related disasters, water resources lack and seismic related ones, with a focus on protecting the poor people in vulnerable situations, due to, also, groundwater resources supply scarcity;
  • to reduce the adverse pro capita environmental impact of cities, also by paying special attention to air quality and “municipal and other” water, wastewater and solid wastes management;
  • to contribute to the education of building and environment designers, able to operate in the constitution of a sustainable and resilient city and territory;
  • to significantly support the increasing number of cities and human settlements which adopt and implement integrated policies and plans towards inclusion, wellbeing, resource efficiency, mitigation and adaptation to climate change, resilience to disasters, and develop and implement, in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, holistic disaster risk management at all levels.

With the aim of reaching these targets, the Master’s Programme in Sustainable Building Engineering will provide a multidisciplinary approach. E.g.  subjects like Remote sensing, Geographic Information System (GIS) and Digital Modeling for Architecture will be included, as the right representation of territories and buildings is the first step for designing new building and restoring the existing ones.

Building design for architectural renovation and regeneration, Structural Dynamics, Seismic Design, Foundation Design, Building Health, Bioclimatic Design, will be addressed to improve the skills of the future building sustainable engineer.

The “building object” is the component of a more wide network of environment and infrastructure, then Hydraulics, Hydraulic Infrastructures, Wastewater Treatment Plants Design, Solid Waste and Groundwater Management, Engineering Geophysics, Sustainable Techniques for Road Construction will be all given to make the student aware and skilled about the educational targets of the Master’s Programme in Sustainable Building Engineering.
