Dear colleagues,

We are running another version of Sustainable Building Design<https://www.edx.org/course/environmental-technologies-in-buildings> on edX starting May 25 - August 14, 2021. This free course is based on a residential MIT course. Please share the information with your students, interns and/or others who might be interested.

By the end of the course, you will:

  *   understand and apply the scientific principles underlying the thermal and luminous behavior of buildings,
  *   learn to evaluate the pros and cons of a range of technologies for creating comfortable indoor environments,
  *   conduct a series of design analysis workflows regarding climate, building energy use and daylighting,
  *   acquire the knowledge required to critically discuss/present the environmental concept of a building.

A downloadable timeline <https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-JWNc67oKl8xFFH_-L3lqjQA-FZI-P2nRA-1lXNOHlY/edit> is available as well. For those of you that have audited the course in the past, please note we have changed assignment due dates to be more flexible.

We look forward to working with you, and thank you for your interest in sustainable buildings!

Alpha, Christoph, Rowan and Portia
