Due to the timing of optional and elective courses, credit accumulation per semester / academic year may vary.
The Master of engineering provides skills that require special expertise on workplace development tasks. The degree gives the same qualifications for public office as universities and other higher education institutions completed science master's degree. The specialization studies are:
• HVAC technology and
• Electrical Building Services
The studies consist of compulsory studies (15 credits), advanced studies (10 credits) and elective studies (5 credits). In addition, the studies include a thesis (30 credits), which is made in principle to the employer. The focus of studies is on energy efficiency, life-cycle costs, environmental impact, nearly zero-energy construction solutions and research capabilities.
Students may choose either the HVAC technology or electrical engineering. The main themes of HVAC technology are the indoor climate, energy efficiency and economy and heat production solutions using renewable energy sources. The main topics of electrical building services are the building automation and control, information and security systems of buildings and their comprehensive know-how and integration.
Training will be conducted multi-form studies. The studies can be completed while working. The studies include the nearby courses, small group work and distance learning. Classroom education is on Thursday (evening), on Friday and possibly on Saturday. Contact teaching periods are 7 - 10 times per semester. Teaching is organized in such a way that the degree can be completed in two years.
The student understands the nearly zero-energy building design process and technical solutions, and is able to design and dimension HVAC, electrical and automation systems on them. The student is able to calculate the energy use in the building. In addition, student is able to make the life cycle calculations, to explain the principles of environmental impact calculations of buildings and the use of dynamic simulation programs. The student is also able to describe the stages of research and development project and plan the project and report it.
