The Building Physics and Services (BPS) program is about acquiring new knowledge, then new knowledge and integrating and developing design methods that lead to a sustainable, healthy, comfortable, and productive indoor and outdoor environment. The program covers a wide range of interdisciplinary research topics, with a focus on physical aspects and processes such as heat and mass transfer in building constructions, indoor air quality, lighting, acoustics, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and materials. 

The research is carried out in our specialized laboratory. Well-equipped and with highly qualified technical staff to support you, the lab’s facilities allow a wide range of experiments in all aspects of building physics and services. In addition, our computing power laboratory also offers advanced simulation software like Fluent, ESP-r, Dirac, Radiance and COMSOL.

Core programs

Within the Architecture, Building and Planning master's program, we offer four optional tracks. However, the programs are extremely flexible, and you have freedom to compose your own personal study plan according to your interests, capacities or other motives. A member of the academic staff will be your mentor and sounding board to discuss your goals and choices.
