The Division of Building Technology brings together knowledge from Building Physics Modelling, Building Materials, Infrastructure Physics and Sustainable Building. The building industry represents one of the largest and most important enterprises in the world. Costs associated with housing are the largest expenditure of an average family. One third of the Swedish energy consumption is used in residential and commercial buildings.
Both in Sweden and internationally there is a growing demand for practical, sustainable building designs that will provide a higher standard of living with minimal resource demand. These issues are dealt with in the research groups at Building Technology:
At the division, we primarily teach building technology to future civil engineers, construction engineers, architects and masters within the program Structural Engineering and Building Technology.
