The Department of Building Construction delivers lectures in building construction, stu­dio design typology, thermodynamics, acous­tics, daylighting, and the energy efficiency of buildings. Students are trained in the design of construction units, elements, and details through theoretical and experimental methods of reasoning.

The Department's scientific and research activities rely on an established experimental basis and are aimed at problems of thermal comfort, heat and humidity transfer through the walls and roofs of buildings and their joints, sound transmission in buildings, room and urban acoustics, the theory of dayliqhting and the solar energy of buildings, air infiltra­tion and the effect of driving rain on walls and roofs of buildings and their joints, the to­tal energy effectiveness of buildings, the du­rability of building materials, and building re­construction.
