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:

  • Use state of the art tools to conduct simulations and assess building energy performance.
  • Tackle complex technical problems and participate in a multidisciplinary environment. 
  • Contribute to and influence the design of energy-efficient buildings, while considering the architecture and environment, occupants’ behaviour, their health and comfort.

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.
