The certificate program “Ecological Building” teaches qualitative and quantitative analysis basics for sustainability-relevant aspects of buildings and urban quarters. The emphasis is on ecological issues, as well as the economic, social and technical aspects of construction. For this holistic approach, different levels of focus come into play – from the city, to the neighborhood, to the individual building.
The course program consists of three modules: Introduction to Ecological Building, Life Cycle Engineering, and Circularity & Healthy Building. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be able to plan for future generations, evaluate sustainable buildings, think in terms of resource cycles, and consider biological construction and health aspects in their building plan processes.
