Thermodynamics of comfort in buildings

This course provides an integrated approach to analyze thermal performance of buildings by examining thermodynamics of heat flows in buildings and correlation between human thermoregulation, thermal sensation of occupants, dynamic indoor and outdoor environment, performance of the building envelope

Building energetics

The course presents the fundamentals of energy management in buildings while emphasizing the need for human comfort. The learning is supported by building energy modeling of a case study building which offers an opportunity to understand trade-offs between energy and comfort.

Making the campus of tomorrow

The EPFL-UNIL campus is today at the heart of an intense institutional reflection on its future. The ENAC week aims to carry out specific operational proposals for the campus starting from a reflection on public space, climate change and and built environment.
