Masters in Building Services in Europe 2017. After the first cycle of studies (license), the Master "Energy efficiency of building systems," adds EEITB engineers skills, in-depth knowledge in key areas of research developed in our Faculty: energy buildings, comfort in indoor environments, the behavior of technical building systems (ventilation, heating, refrigeration, packing unit of the air, electrical, lighting, sanitation, automatic management, acoustics, atmospheric pollution and filtration systems, renewable energy sources). The courses are based on topics such as: Advanced technical thermodynamics (compressible gas dynamics, irreversible thermodynamics with finite speed, non-conventional energy systems) fluid mechanics (boundary layer turbulence, CFD) Electrical Power (theoretical electrical engineering, power systems transient and non-sinusoidal regime) numerical modeling and simulation of the behavior of equipment and facility systems, experimental methods of monitoring the operation of facilities systems complex systems of technical management, renewable and efficient energy, materials, "smart" equipment and systems used in buildings with very low energy consumption, the power-generating performance evaluation methods of installation systems (audit and energy certification of buildings). Most courses of the Masters has directed work or practical work. The last half is allocated to the development of the dissertation thesis and practical placements. The Skills and Professional Career At the end of the Masters students can easily develop a career in basic research (modeling and simulation) or in experimental research - civil engineering, activitées become very well also requested for project engineers, inspection engineers and experts. Practical skills obtained also allow better working assembly facilities in design (for systems of all degrees of complexity) or operating systems of modern facilities and technical expertise activities. Depth knowledge of FUNCTIONING of facility systems provides the ability to evaluate existing systems (technical inspection by audit and energy certification and functional diagnosis), anticipate the behavior of buildings and their systems and also to realize their effective use. The numerical simulation performed with effective information technology and also experimental research developed especially around the noninvasive mobile laboratories provide high quality learning these point of study techniques. The graduation The Diploma of Higher Education Romanian Public obtained in the domain "Facilities Constructions (Civil Engineering)" is officially reconu in all EU member countries. In addition, the Master 'Energy efficiency of building systems (EPIC) is, from the academic year 2016-2017, about a Double Degree Programme conducted with the University of La Rochelle (ULR) , mention Master Construction Engineering, IB-GI3ER course.

Testimonial Angelene Dascanio, USA This Masters is fast-paced, challenging and encompasses the skills required for a career in structural engineering. It includes both general and specialty concepts, for example, I took modules in steel and concrete design, but was also able to take a bridge engineering module to fulfil my interest in that particular field. I was initially drawn to the program because it uniquely incorporates some architecture modules into its curriculum. Also, I found the program framework, 60 credits of coursework and 30 credits of a research project, to be very efficient. During the academic year I was able to focus solely on my coursework, meet with my professors for extra help, and study for examinations. Then, during the summer, my efforts were placed on carrying out a research project with the guidance of a professor in my field of interest. As an international student (from America), I felt welcomed by the faculty and fellow classmates. I experienced a smooth transition between the material I learned as an undergraduate and the material presented on this Masters. As a whole, the program effectively prepared me with the essential skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a structural engineering career. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]

The building sector is a key actor in the process of creating sustainable value, both for the client and for the society. BIM is a collective name for ICT-based tools and methods used in the building sector. Traditionally, the acronym BIM stands for Building Information Model, Building Information Modeling or Building Information Method. Today, to scope the complexity of this process, we talk about Building Information Management. BIM let stakeholders visualize, simulate, and analyze how a building might behave, perform, or appear—earlier in the process and with more precision.
