  • Master in Building Science program (M.Eng. and M.A.Sc.)
  • Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling:
  • BCIT is offering a new Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling starting September 1, 2015.

    Energy Modelling is an important area of specialization of Building Science; as such, the Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling builds on the strengths and success of the Building Science Graduate Program at BCIT. The Certificate offers a unique physics-based interdisciplinary curriculum that develops a good understanding of the fundamental physical principles underlying building energy performance, and their application to the optimization systems, subsystems, and whole-building performance. Emphasis is placed on mechanical systems design, operation, and control; and their integration with the building envelope.

    Energy modelling is often mistakenly perceived as simply using sophisticated software tools to simulate building energy performance; but little is known about the underlying modelling principles and limitations of these tools, which often leads to highly inaccurate simulation results. A program for training competent building energy modellers was long overdue.
