Building Energy Efficiency Technology and Engineering
Building Energy Efficiency Technology and Engineering is an international educational programme born of a partnership between the Foundation and Chongqing University’s School of Urban Construction and Environment Engineering. The programme focuses on the sustainable development of the built environment, with interdisciplinary practice as a key element; students and researchers glean knowledge from the perspective of approaches beyond their own majors. Sustainable practice is folded into the course and lecture teachings; the programme contributes towards the normalised production of sustainable future infrastructure, whilst also bolstering participants’ skillsets with cross-disciplinary experience.
- embedding sustainability as a standard part of the built environment design and build process, starting at undergraduate teaching level
- promoting interdisciplinary learning within architecture and engineering, with a view to strengthening both fields
- providing a replicable model for other universities, spreading the promotion of sustainable design and management beyond Chongqing University
