Expert training course on energy simulation andbuilding performance analysis – Fundamental course

The reason for choosing the course

Fundamental Courses on energy simulation and building performance analysis will be taught on 2 consecutive days in Vietnamese or English. Target learners are architects, engineers … who are concerned about the issue of energy saving and design optimization.

On this course, in the beginning, learners will be introduced the general knowledge of energy simulation and building performance analysis, then apply to actual projects. Then, learners will practice the software with experts of Designbuilder Viet Nam through exercises for these training content

After completing the course you can:

  • Understand the benefits of using building performance simulation to support the design, construction and operation process, aiming for high-performance buildings
  • Understand the process and practices of energy simulation, natural lighting & CFD
  • Get a general understanding of the Designbuilder software and learn how to use its energy simulation, parametric analysis, natural lighting and CFD features.
