Course content

The course is conducted in conjunction with a project work that integrates the following 4 main themes: Project Management. Building technology. Building structures. Technical installations. Theme 1 Project management, applications to authorities, cost estimates, project descriptions, schedules and tender documentation. Theme 2 Building technology 2 with a continuation of the subject Building technology 1, with emphasis on incorporating a further understanding framework for building construction techniques and illustrating the connection between the different elements that are needed to understand how buildings work, building problems and choice of materials. The theoretical part of building technology with climate constructions, heat engineering solutions, moisture mechanics, sound, acoustics and introduction to fire engineering dimensioning. Practical building technology with building engineering main features, building parts relationships with each other and the importance of details for the whole.Material qualities and equipment standards. Design criteria in the different phases of the construction process to assess framework conditions and building tasks' content and complexity. Use of building information models. Theme 3 Building constructions with common structural principles for support systems, especially regarding to foundation and simple dimensioning of concrete and wood constructions. Theme 4 Technical installations, heating, ventilation and sanitary (plumbing) and electrical installations (EL). Plumbing section: Construction and operation of heating, ventilation and sanitation. Space requirements. EL Part: Basic introduction to electrical engineering. Lighting systems, light sources and energy consumption.

Learning outcome

Knowledge The candidate can explain important construction principles and concepts in construction work. The candidate can apply knowledge of common building materials and components to solve simple technical issues within construction subjects and justify their choices. The candidate can describe common technical solutions for construction and the theoretical basis for these. The candidate can argue for important environmental goals from a professional point of view. The candidate is familiar with basic building rules / legislation. The candidate can update his / her knowledge in the field through information retrieval in building research online. Skills The candidate can draw out standard building constructions on a scale by hand and using DAK. The candidate can apply calculation methods to document the building construction qualities. The candidate can apply current legislation to the design and documentation of solutions. General competence The candidate has insight into the environmental consequences of products and solutions in building technology. The candidate shall have an interdisciplinary understanding of the engineer's field of profession and what tasks engineers are expected to solve in their work.

Learning methods and activities

Further on evaluation

A graduation exam is held in March. Continuation and voluntary repetition / improvement can be carried out for some sub-evaluations without requiring all sub-evaluations in a subject to be re-recorded. There is an opportunity to complain about partial assessments in this topic before all sub-evaluations have been completed. Permitted exam aids: Certainly simple calculator - one of the types Casio fx-82ES PLUS, Casio FX-82EX, Citizen SR-270X, Citizen SR-270X College, Hewlett Packard HP30S.
