Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Implement an engineering approach dealing with a set problem taking into account technical, economic and environmental constraints
    • Understand the stages of an engineering approach
    • Design, evaluate and optimise solutions addressing the problem
    • Implement a chosen solution in the form of a drawing, a schema, a plan, a model, a prototype, software and/or digital model
    • Identify and acquire the information and skills needed to solve the problem
  • Understand the theoretical and methodological fundamentals in arts, science, engineering and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic principles of engineering sciences and construction
  • Communicate in a structured way - visually, orally and in writing, in French and English - giving clear, accurate, and reasoned information
    • Use several methods of written and graphic communication: text, tables, equations, sketches, maps, graphs, etc.
    • Give an effective oral presentation, using presentation materials appropriately
  • Demonstrate thoroughness and independence throughout their studies
    • Develop scientific and cultural curiosity and open-mindedness

Learning Outcomes of UE

Students should be able: to understand the importance of the electrical energy vector in the building management, to evaluate the  "safety" of people and goods; to evaluate the use of renewable energies in buildings; to evalute the use of domotic systems,to contemplate the economic management of electrical energy and modern solutions for electrical power supply; to understand the most common electrical energy applications as well as their implementation under the Belgian RGIE regulations. Introduction à la domotique.

Content of UE

Theory-exercices mode course. students must be present during the first lecture : Contents: Electrical circuits devices, stationary currents and DC circuits solving methods, notions on magnetism; variable and sinusoidal currents; main electrical machines used in buildings; RGIE regulations and electrical installations analysis; protection of human beings and buildings facilities against electrical hazards; electrical installation on buildings: design, implementation and validation. Introduction to domotics: the KNX system; renewable energies in buildings.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q2

  • Written examination
  • Graded tests

Q2 UE Assessment Comments

Quoted exercises exam (open books, before session,  3 hours). Weight: 50%  -Written exam on the theory ( closed books, during session, 2 hours). Weight: 50%. NOTE : 1) Students that have not aproved the exercices exam before session  will have another oportunity during session, after the exam on the theory. In both cases, students must present the written exam on the theory during session. 2) In order to prevent any kind of speculation, all points will be revealed after the proofread of the exam on the theory. 3) Students that have not approved the exercices exam before session will be informed before the session exam date in order to present again the exercices exam. This is mandatory.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q3

  • Written examination
  • Graded tests

Q3 UE Assessment Comments
