  • By the end of the course, the students should be able to:
    1.Identify the role of renewable energy sources within the wider range of non-conventional electricity sources.
    2.Demonstrate knowledge and understanding on renewable energy source technologies.
    3.Compare and contrast the characteristics, properties, applications and design considerations of renewable energy sources and systems.
    4.Apply all those tools and knowledge required for the design of renewable energy systems within buildings.
    5.Analyze and assess the performance of renewable energy systems
  • By the end of the course, the students should be able to:
    1.Understand the main principles of buildings energy design
    2.Calculate and discuss the heating and cooling loads of a building
    3.Calculate and discuss on the energy performance of building elements
    4.Issue Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) using the appropriate software tool
    5.Be aware of the different types and procedures of conducting an energy audit
  • By the end of the course, the students should be able to:
    a) Understanding the theoretical foundations of sustainability in the built environment.
    b) Understanding the basic process and tools for implementing sustainable urbanism in the framework of the society and the local/ global environment.
    c) Identifying the role and the impact of the main parameters determining the environmental performance of urban areas and buildings.
    d) Understanding the basic issues on buildings’ energy and environmental performance, both of new and of existing buildings.
    e) Implementing preliminary solutions for the improvement of buildings’ energy and environmental performance, both of new and of existing buildings.
  • The Graduate Program’s seminar series meets during the academic semester on a monthly basis in the Frederick University Seminar Room and features invited speakers in the field of Energy Systems and the Built Environment.
  • The aim of this course is to introduce students to the energy situation related to economy and finances taking into account economic, environmental and social aspects. It also aims to introduce students to the effect and synergy of energy policies, legislation and market trends to energy efficiency.
  • The Graduate Program’s seminar series meets during the academic semester on a monthly basis in the Frederick University Seminar Room and features invited speakers in the field of Energy Systems and the Built Environment.
  • This is the e-learning site that contains information that pertains to the procedure surrounding the Master's Thesis for the MSc Program in Energy Systems & the Built Environment. Specifically, this site will be useful to students registered for either MES579 or MES580.
  • The main objective of MES 552 "Energy and Environmental evaluation tools" is the understanding of the theoretical background behind environmental audits and energy evaluation tools of buildings. Particularly the course aims to introduce the students to the understanding of ISO 14000 rationale for enterprises, as well as to present the main environmental and sustainability evaluation tools of buildings (LEED, DGNB, ASHRAE 189.1). The course also introduces well established energy evaluation tools and methods for buildings such as the hourly analysis methodology and buildings' asset rating based on EN 13790 and EN 15217. MES 552 also resolves other energy evaluation tools such as methodologies related to the assessment of optimal building's insulation thickness.

  • The aim of this course is to introduce students to the basic concepts, methodological approaches, technical components, procedures and law of Environmental Impact Assessments, as these apply to the field of the energy industry and the built environment.
