Why is it critical for future design and construction industry professionals to be educated in solid building science principles?

In order to create buildings that are energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, resilient, and contribute to the well-being of occupants, design and construction professionals must be well-versed in solid building science principles. 

Building science skills are the difference between buildings that will work or fail. Yet, there is no consistent platform for ensuring consistent building science skills across all professions engaged in the buildings sector. Now available, the Building Science Education (BSE) Solution Center is bridging this gap by providing professors, trainers and students with accurate, easy-to-access training materials on the fundamentals of building science.

Visit the BSE site today and access building science training modules for topics related to high-performance residential building systems and applications, including:

  • Lecture Notes
  • Teaching Materials
  • Problem Sets & Testing Materials
  • Supplementary information including videos, images and presentations
