Research found that urban people spent more than 80% of time inside buildings. Think about your daily activities, you live at home, you study in school, you read in library, you shop in mall, you eat in restaurant, and even you do exercise in gym. All these activities happen inside buildings.

Do you notice that? How much do you know about a building even when you have spent more than 80% of your time inside it? Have you ever wonder how buildings keep us comfortable and safe?  What systems and technologies are hidden inside the buildings that allow us to have clean air for breathing, water for drinking, air-conditioning for cooling, Wi-Fi for surfing online?  This course will introduce to you all the fundamental elements and components that contribute in making a building work and function well.
