Master of Technology in Building Energy Performance
Buildings with low energy use are a social and economic imperative for India and other tropical regions that will see the largest growth in the next two decades. Energy use largely determines the environmental footprint of a building over its life span. Research, policy and practice are making building energy performance an area of intellectual and professional growth. Increasingly, a new kind of professional is needed in the building design or operations team to help save energy.
Within the M.Tech. program in Building Energy Performance students learn to:
India and other tropical regions are experiencing an unprecedented economic growth and environmental concerns. Regulations, green building rating systems, and owners’ preferences have created a demand for building energy professionals. With a focus on warm climate, the graduates of this program are attractive candidates for job markets in India, South-east Asia and the Middle-east, and for research careers in Europe and North America. They will work in energy consulting firms, building design teams, with building owners and government agencies, taking a leading role for pursuing energy efficiency with a whole-building perspective.
