Programme objectives

The objective of the Master’s programme in Energy-Efficient Construction is to convey fundamental knowledge covering potential areas for energy saving, thermal insulation for construction, regenerative thermal supply and cost-effectiveness. Students are equipped with the skills for planning and constructing energy-efficient and passive buildings as well as carrying out renovations of existing structures to the highest level of energy efficiency.

A further objective of this Master's programme is to become equipped to apply scientific methods and to independently master the demands of a wide range of professional roles in applied practice, research or teaching.
