Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course contains theoretical and practical training in technical installations for buildings, principles of their design, and calculation aids. The project module also includes calculating quantities, on the one hand for part of an HVAC system, and on the other for a piping system, as well as a planning assignment using a digital drawing tool to coordinate installations at a critical section of a building. The course consists of three main modules:
HVAC systems, pipe installations and electrical installations.

This course covers:

  • Indoor climate and thermal comfort
  • Heating of buildings, heat transfer and heat recovery
  • Mollier diagram for humid air
  • Heat pumps and solar collectors
  • Comfort cooling
  • Frequently used air treatment systems
  • Water and sewage systems in common use
  • Control and regulation systems  
  • Electric installations and electrical safety
  • Planning and installation phases
  • Interpretation of drawings, installation drawings
  • Commissioning, performance inspection, verification inspection and installation handover
  • Laws and regulations that affect installations
  • Organising the coordination of installations
  • Environmental and energy aspects related to technical installations 

Intended learning outcomes
