The drive towards sustainability in the built environment represents both a challenge and a business opportunity for building design professionals. And it is something that simply cannot be ignored. Designers must develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to support the built environment's move onto a low-carbon path. The DfGE Course is aimed at senior architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and other construction industry-related students as well as building design practitioners and professionals who wish to improve their climate literacy while learning how to design resource-efficient structures.
This self-paced DfGE online edition is a 16-hour course that may be completed at one's own pace. Learners will have three (3) months to access the course materials and submit the final design project.
The DfGE course prepares building design professionals across the globe to design buildings that have a meaningful and measurable reduced impact on their environment. The course covers the fundamentals of energy and resource efficiency measures in building design from a technical and commercial perspective. Case studies and examples teach learners how to design for resource efficiency and how to sell those designs in a commercial setting.
To successfully complete this course, it is recommended that the learner must have a working knowledge of database software such as MS Excel, architectural and engineering drawings, and basic mathematics.
