UCSI University

IEN is lecturing at UCSI University for the M.Sc. Architecture course "Computer Aided Modelling and Simulation" (AM523), where the students are taught to undertake building performance simulations on their BIM building models and let it inform their design solutions. This allows the architects to optimize buildings during the design phase, so basic design parameters like building massing, building orientation, window-to-wall ratios, glazing selection, shading and roof insulation are investigated and optimized by the architects from the onset of the project. Apart from teaching computer aided modelling and simulation, IEN is also conveying lessons learned relevant case studies of completed energy efficient and green buildings in Malaysia, especially pertaining to design issues relating to architecture like daylighting and natural ventilation.
