Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Both theoretical and practical design aspects are considered, and modern design tools are included.

The following parts are included:

  • Indoor climate requirements
  • Thermal considerations including heat transfer and heat recovery
  • Moisture and the Mollier chart
  • Energy conservation in buildings
  • Heat pumps and solar energy
  • Space heating and ventilation system design
  • Air conditioning, sanitation, and electrical installations
  • BIM (Building Information Modeling)

Intended learning outcomes

The course leads to basic knowledge of heat transfer and dimensioning principles for installing heat, water and ventilation. Energy, environment and climate aspects are central. The engineering and design of building installations are dealt with both in theory and practice.

After completing this course the student is familiar with:

  • design routines in heating, ventilation and sanitation
  • healthy and energy efficient indoor climate solutions
  • safety aspects in building services design

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • PROA - Project, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 6.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

A student who is 0.5 points, 1 point or 1.5 points away from a passing grade (30 points) on the exam will be entitled to take supplementary exam. A request to take a supplementary exam should be submitted to the examiner promptly after the exam result has been communicated. Passing the supplementary exam result in an E grade. 

Other requirements for final grade

To receive a final grade for this course, a passing grade on the submitted assignments as well as a grade E or higher on the written examination are required.

Overall course grade is based on grading scale A-F.

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
