Welcome to Building Science Education Solution Center

Building science skills are the difference between buildings that will work or fail. Yet, there is no consistent platform for ensuring consistent building science skills across all workforce professions engaged in the buildings sector. The Building Science Education (BSE) Solution Center provides professors, trainers and students with accurate, easy-to-access training materials on the fundamentals of building science.

HVAC in a Home
This module describes basic components, basic installation and ratings of HVAC systems.
This training module describes how to identify and minimize pollutants to improve indoor air quality in buildings.
This training module describes how to use life-cycle analysis to provide energy, carbon, or cost or other information over the life of a product.
This training module covers the importance of lighting, appliances and miscellaneous electric loads in building science.
Although often used interchangeably, within the building profession, disaster resistance refers to the ability to resist the onset and impact of a disaster, and disaster resiliency refers to the ability to absorb the impact of a disaster. This module will provide information on how building science can help ensure that buildings remain standing during disasters while being energy efficient.
IECC Code Adoption Map
Building codes and standards are sets of regulations governing the design, construction, alteration and maintenance of structures and equipment. Building codes and standards specify how buildings and equipment must be constructed or perform, and are written in mandatory, enforceable language. Usually, states and local governments adopt and enforce building codes and standards for their jurisdictions.
