Energy Modeling: Engineering Project PBL
Students will learn how to utilize Energy Modeling software to analyze the energy efficiency of proposed building designs. Students will have a goal of creating buildings that meet California's Title 24 Energy standards and Title 24 standards for LEED. Students will analyze design decisions based on building performance.Students will learn how to leverage BIM (Building Information Model) data into energy modeling software to work more productively.
Energy modeling is performed in several professions including Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, and Energy Consultation. It is a skill that is currently in demand in industry.
