Construction Materials & Assemblies
This course examines the principles, techniques, equipment, and materials used in the construction industry. It focuses on selecting the proper materials and equipment for specific construction tasks and estimating costs. It evaluates the properties of building materials such as: concrete, brick, wood, steel, plastics, synthetic fibers, adhesives, sealants, and composites.
Academic Supervisor : Miguel Ángel Fernández Sánchez

Renewable Energy
This course reviews the new energy paradigm: local energy resource availability in different countries, the need to reduce CO2 and other gas emissions, implications of global warming and climate change, the political and economic implications of increasing scarcity of conventional oil, and the importance of renewable energy. Finally, it explores the principles for sustainable energy development and how to accomplish it.
Academic Supervisor : Luis Fontanet Sallan

Architectural Design
This course examines the various human purposes in architecture, the types of architectural styles, and the different approaches to construction. It presents architectural design theories, methods, ideas, and technologies. Finally, it finally explores new views on architectural aesthetics.
Academic Supervisor : Verónica Torres Cervero

Architectural Structures
This course deals with the structural systems behavior statics, and force analysis; the study of the strength and properties of materials; and the shapes of structural elements with respect to their effectiveness in resisting stresses. It includes stress and strain, analysis and design of beams and columns, and it examines forces on buildings (snow, live loads, wind, and earthquake).
Academic Supervisor : Verónica Torres Cervero

Building Technology
This course presents important issues of building technology namely heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical distribution, and fire protection systems and emphasizes on the aspects of their design, construction, budgeting, and problem solving. It presents solutions for achieving energy-efficient buildings, for evaluating thermal performances, materials and envelopes resistance, air flow through and around buildings, and strategies for integrating technology into the architectural design process.
Academic Supervisor : Graeme Dean Hamilton

Building Design
This course studies building design processes and the evaluation of design alternatives. It explores a conceptual building design: area requirements, space layout, structures, enclosure systems, and services. It includes site preparation and earthwork, wood framing, masonry, concrete forming, precast construction, industrialized building, shoring, and underpinning.
Academic Supervisor : Verónica Torres Cervero

Architectural Environmental Integration
This course considers how climate and environment determine building forms, site analysis, and design strategies to optimize comfort temperature and illumination. It presents passive means for environmental control, including day lighting use and noise reduction, and enhances the aesthetics integration with the surroundings.
Academic Supervisor : Graeme Dean Hamilton

Alternative Energies
This course explores the usefulness of various types of energies and the application of engineering in designing alternative energy systems.
