Buildings and Climate Change Course

Continued industrialization equates to building more and more infrastructure. More buildings also mean increased carbon emissions, and these emissions start as early as the construction phase to the actual operational phase of these buildings that last decades. 

We look at just one aspect, that is, the use of fossil-fuel-based energy to provide thermal comfort, and we can already see the huge environmental impact of a poorly designed building. 

This course aims to mitigate that by helping you design buildings that do not depend too much on fossil fuels that worsens climate change. 

What You’ll Learn

  • The historical backdrop and key components of the earth’s climate system
  • The laws that govern the sun-earth relationship
  • Differentiating climate and weather phenomenon
  • Key features of macroclimate and microclimate
  • Climate classification systems
  • Climate parameters and their instrumentation
  • Interpreting a solar path diagram
  • Interpreting data in a wind rose diagram
  • Extracting meteorological data to prepare with Mahoney Tables
  • Calculating heating and cooling degree days
  • Understanding the outcome of the foregoing tools and techniques for an effective building envelope design

Climate and Buildings Course Description

This Climate and Buildings Course provides you with the fundamental knowledge of climate change. It helps you understand the outcome of implementable design techniques for an effective building envelope design.

By taking this course, you will have a solid foundation on how buildings and climate interact and impact one another. The lessons here aim to strengthen your understanding of architecture and its relevance in climate, allowing you to make more conscious design decisions that focus on not just aesthetics and thermal comfort but the environment as well.

Continuing Education (CE) or Continuing Professional Development (CPD) refers to additional formal learning activities that are required to maintain a professional certification or accreditation. 

CE or CPD comes in many names but represents the same thing. Here are some of them that may be used in your country: 

  • CPD – Continuing Professional Development
  • CEU – Continuing Education Units
  • PDH – Professional Development Hours
  • CEP – Continuing Education Programs
  • CPC – Continuing Professional Competency

Many of our courses provide Continuing Professional Development credits, points, hours, or units. To learn more about Continuing Education and Continuing Professional Development, please read here.


When you pass all the quizzes in this course, you’ll get a certificate of achievement on course completion, with a QR code that when scanned validates its authenticity. Use this certificate to demonstrate to employees and others your growing sustainability credentials!

This Course Is Perfect For:

  • Architecture Students
  • Engineering Students
  • Architecture Trainers and Educators 
  • Architects
  • Interior Designers 

This course is best for people aspiring to specialize in the sustainable building sector.  Professionals with training in designing buildings that operate with very low energy consumption and carbon footprint are in high demand because buildings are now required to be climate-responsive and because of the huge savings in operational costs. 

If you want to design or build establishments that do not require too much power while maintaining a standard level of comfort and function like any well-built building, please enroll in this course.

Why Enroll in Climate and Buildings Training Course

The training course on Climate and Buildings is aimed at building the skill sets of building science professionals, specifically on sustainable building design. This online course is the next logical step to adding more value to formal education and provides professionals with knowledge of the current developments in the field.

The creator of this course is Dr. Roshni Udyavar Yehuda, an academician and practicing architect with a Ph.D. in Resource Management on structural configuration and thermal behavior of buildings. Dr. Yehuda, an empaneled expert on the Energy Conservation Building Code of India, has more than 20 years of academic and professional experience. She has traveled to more than 20 countries to lend her expertise in energy-efficient and environmental design of buildings. 

This course contains tools and approaches that have been proven effective as they have been drawn from Dr. Yehuda’s extensive experience on the subject.

love this short course

I am very happy that I have the opportunity to get the Sustemy courses and learn and expand my knowledge within the renewable energy field. In specific this climate-related course introduces me to some new topics which are essential as a renewable energy engineer. The content of course is intensive and given proper direction. However in quiz section need to bit improve in terms of answer checking.
