Division of Architectural Engineering

Organisation profile

Head of Division
Kjeld Svidt

The Architectural Engineering division is concerned with research and education in the analysis, design, construction, and operation of engineering systems for commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities. The Architectural Engineering division focuses on an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to achieve optimal building designs and pays special attention to their impacts on the indoor as well as the surrounding environment. This implies integration of architectural design with engineering systems like structural systems, communications and control, lighting, acoustics, fire protection, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning as well as close cooperation with other key players in all areas of the building process.

The Architectural Engineering division has selected the following key research areas:

  • Building Informatics
    Research on design, integration and structuring of ICT tools, and product and rocess models in the entire building process. Focus is on model collaboration and knowledge transfer between participants in design, construction, O&M and use of buildings.
  • Indoor Environmental Engineering
    Research on ventilation and air flow processes in buildings and building services and their impact on energy and mass flow in buildings, thermal comfort, indoor air quality and health.
    Research on energy efficient building design, interaction of passive energy technologies and building design, and optimization of interaction between building services and passive systems.
