This course works in conjunction with the technical course projects in the Building Science Graduate programs. The aim of the course is to help students develop skills required to communicate competently with other building professionals, owners, and clients in different work contexts. Students will also learn to research, summarize, and deliver technical information required for building performance analyses, such as energy modelling; and present findings from relevant technical building science projects to a range of technical and non-technical audiences, in both oral and written formats.
This course isn't currently offered through IZUNA Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
