A highly worthwhile endeavor in view of the fact that architecture is essentially a net ‘borrower’ of knowledge from the annals of science: Some from the physical sciences (e.g., mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, acoustics, electricity, geology, geography, meteorology, hydrology, astronomy, et al.); some from the social, behavioral and administrative sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, economics, management, et al.) and others yet from the life-sciences (e.g., plant and animal ecology, environment management, hygiene, pollution control and containment, sewage treatment, et al.).
In more specific terms the Master of Science in Building Science at METU Middle East Technical University looks into the many-faceted aspects of concerns like:
- building management efficiency
- construction systematics
- computer aided design and manufacturing technologies in architecture
- computer-based library for construction detailing
- function-specific spaces
- energy in building design
- integrated mechanical systems
- building system design for sustainability
- environmental and room acoustics
- thermal performance of buildings
- computer modeling and simulations, etc.
