Students, professors and lecturers of building science, as well
as practicing architects, engineers and risk management professionals
interested in building science education, should attend an upcoming workshop from
ASTM International and the National Institute of Building Sciences. The ASTM/NIBS Workshop on Building Science
Education in North America
will be held April 6 at the Sheraton Toronto in Ontario, Canada.
Sponsored by ASTM Committee E06 on
Performance of Buildings; ASTM Subcommittees E06.55 on Performance of Building
Enclosures and E06.41 on Air Leakage and Ventilation Performance; the ASTM
Built Environment Advisory Council; the National Institute of Building
Sciences; and the Joint Committee on Building Science Education, the workshop
will provide an overview of building science education as it currently exists
in North America. The one-day event will offer a critical review of
graduate-level curricula currently available in building science and how that
curricula can be further developed and refined to more effectively educate
architects, engineers and construction professionals.
Speakers who are recognized as
subject-matter experts in Building Science education, training and curriculum
development—representing universities in Canada and the United States—will make
The workshop will conclude with an appraisal
of the ASTM/NIBS Building Enclosure Certification and Training Program
currently under development, which offers a new opportunity for professional
development, certification and career advancement in architecture and
engineering. Talks will address how that curriculum can be developed to align
with curricula at Canadian and American colleges and universities to satisfy
the certification requirements being developed.
