Academic Curricula Integration Project (ACIP)

PREMISE

In the building construction and the air conditioning industries, terminologies like green, efficient and unconventional etc. have trickled into the lexicon of practitioners. However, this does not always translate into implementation. The next generation of building professionals – architects, engineers, building consultants, energy modellers etc., is not taught substantial, actionable knowledge on green buildings. This is because the curricula in architecture and engineering courses taught in universities are devoid of content related to Green Building design principles, the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC), and Sustainable Cooling Technologies (classical and their new-age derivatives, as well as state-of-the-art). Indian students graduating from technology and architecture institutes have not been taught to identify energy efficiency as a national and global priority.

CORE OFFERINGS

The Academic Curricula Integration Project (ACIP) will partner with architecture and engineering colleges in eight cities across India to initiate a series of workshops to foster understanding of the above subjects. The project is proposed to be executed across eight cities: Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad- amongst one architecture college and one engineering college in each city. The workshops would be of two types: Training of Trainers (ToT) and Certificate Programmes. AClP’s primary objective in conducting this two pronged set of workshops is to address the prevalent knowledge gaps that hinder the transition from preaching to practice.

Events under ACIP

3-day Training of Trainers (ToT) Workshop for Architecture Professors

What are Energy Efficient Building Design methodologies and relevant codes (ECBC etc.)? How they are designed to improve the Energy Performance Index (EPI) of commercial and residential buildings for Architecture Programmes.

View Template Workshop Agenda
5-day certification workshop for engineering students

What are the most efficient mechanical cooling techniques outside ACs? State-of-the-art information and system level design considerations, energy and GHG emissions performance parameters, and cost-benefit analysis techniques related to Efficient/sustainable Cooling Technologies including Radiant Cooling, Evaporative Cooling (Direct and Indirect), Vapour Absorption, and Natural Refrigerant based cooling – for Civil and Mechanical Engineering Programs.

What are energy performance modelling tools for buildings? How toolkits, software and other instructional material developed in-house as well as drawn from other national efforts related to Building Energy Efficiency help designers conceive energy efficient buildings. How do these concepts materialise on site?

Fairconditioning co-organized and is currently co-organizing such events in Universities and colleges, find out more about these events and see the detailed programes in our Events page.
