Green.Building.Solutions. Summer University
Registration is now open for a pioneering interdisciplinary Austrian summer university programme, which provides world-leading insight into sustainable architecture and the built environment.
Green.Building.Solutions (GBS). GBS takes place in Vienna, the capital of energy efficient construction.
It provides a unique opportunity for professionals and students alike to strengthen their knowledge and gain a career advantage in the field of sustainability – an area of increasing global significance.
GBS has been conceived as a modular university course with the University for Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, with seven ECTS points awarded after successful completion.
The three-week programme’s lectures and all associated social activities are carried out in English and the course is of appeal to – but not limited to – those working in and studying architecture, construction management, project management, building and energy engineering and surveying.
“The programme concludes with a collaborative project, where participants work together to bring their learning and experiences from the course to design a ‘green’ building.”
Organised by the OeAD-Housing Office, which offers passive house accommodation for students across Austria, together with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, the course advocates the use of natural resources by connecting natural, engineering and economic sciences. The summer university forms a platform for like-minded international participants to exchange their passions for sustainable design and it also gives a chance to participants to live in a passive house. In March 2015, the OeAD-Housing Office was awarded with the Environmental Award by the City of Vienna for its outstanding and overarching project, “Sustainable living and studying” and is honoured by the Austrian UNESCO Commission. The seventh Green.Building.Solutions Summer University Program takes place from July 22nd to August 13th, 2017.
The program is open to students and professionals from all fields.
