Programme Description

Course in Design and Optimization of Zero Energy Consumption Buildings

E-Learning University of Athens

This online course is the outcome of the collaboration of the University of Athens with the International Union of Architects - ARES Int. WP and is grounded on distance learning with its base being the educational system of E-Learning Programme of the Center for Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA). The course fees for the first 25 applicants will be 700 euros.

The aim of the whole module is the Vocational Training and Education mainly for architects and other related specializations such as Civil Engineers and/or other engineering scientists dealing with issues of planning, evaluation, and optimization for buildings of zero energy by the positive energy balance.

The present course is included in the Environment - Architecture category of our online courses and it runs via a user-friendly educational platform.

Once the participant completes all the units successfully, he/she receives a certificate of specialized training (UoA-UIA).

The proposed CPD Professional Development and Training programme will be conducted in cooperation with the International Union of Architects UIA CPD programme and the UIA Work Programme ARES [Architecture & Renewable Energy Sources].

Participant Profile

The aim of the whole module is the Vocational Training and Education mainly for architects and other related specializations such as Civil Engineers and/or other engineering scientists dealing with issues of planning, evaluation, and optimization for buildings of zero energy by the positive energy balance.

Programme Aims

It is well known that by the end of this decade all new buildings in Europe and in other parts of the developed world should have almost zero energy consumption.

Since the achievement of such planning is associated with highly significant technical and economic issues which must be addressed during the design and construction of buildings, there is an increased need for automatically rapid and efficient training of all involved engineers and scientists in the related fields.

The Professional Development Programme, Training, and Education will focus on the following:

Technologies of shell building, the technology of auxiliary heating and air conditioning, advanced technologies of technical and natural lighting, technologies to improve indoor air quality, technical and natural ventilation systems, techniques and technologies to improve the building microclimate, renewable energy systems for buildings and settlements, advanced automatic control systems for buildings, economic optimization methods, calculation programs and energy consumption and environmental quality of buildings, legislation and best management practices, presentation of relevant practices and existing buildings.

The training module will be taught famous architects, scientists and engineers from around the world with advanced experience in the relevant issues and will be indicated both by the UIA and from EKPA.

All of the training modules will be in the English language.

Due to the programme’s level of quality, financial aid is offered to students from developing countries.

The discount amount will be set by the committee that will evaluate the applications.
