About SBC

The following focus areas or themes for the Smart Buildings & Cities (SBC) program and its design projects are defined (based on the research areas of TU/eā€™s Smart Cities program):

  • A carbon neutral city ā€“ designing of intelligent and energy efficient building components and concepts; renewable energy generation and storage in the built environment; intelligent networks aimed at matching supply and demand.
  • A climate proof, healthy and circular city ā€“ designing buildings and cities that mitigate the effects of climate change; are based on the principles of circular economy; promote healthy living and to improve quality of life in the built environment.

The goal of the SBC program is to service industry (consulting, policy making, product development) by delivering designers with a broad technological understanding of the disciplines related to the above mentioned smart cities themes (architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, building physics and services and ICT), who excel in their own discipline and who are able to work in multidisciplinary design teams, contribute to design issues outside their own core disciplines, integrate different technologies into new products and concepts, and who understand the commercial aspects of these innovative products and concepts.
