Course Description (Malti)

Il-Master of Science in High Performance Buildings (HPB) jipprovdi lill-kandidati l-opportunità li jiżviluppaw kunċetti ta’ bini ottimizzati, bl-integrazzjoni ta’ diversi komponenti talmetodoloġija tad-disinn ħolistiku, il-fiżika tal-bini, il-klimatoloġija u l-kumdità tal-bini, l-effiċjenza fl-enerġija, is-sorsi ambjentali, is-sistemi tas-servizzi tal-bini, l-ajrudinamika tal-bini, is-simulazzjonijiet termali u fluwidi dinamiċi tasCFD, id-disinn tat-tidwil, l-operat tal-bini, kif ukoll l-immudellar ekoloġiku urban. Il-programm jipprovdi ħiliet avvanzati flispeċjalizzazzjoni u r-riċerka xjentifika talfiżika tal-bini, flimkien mad-disinn tal-arkitettura, filwaqt li jħejji lillistudenti għal ambjenti professjonali kif ukoll tar-riċerka u l-iżvilupp fil-livelli nazzjonali u internazzjonali.
