Curriculum

The educational offer is divided into five thematic blocks covering a wide area of knowledge related to natural light in the building sector.

Within them, the modules are independent. They can be followed without having to respect a hierarchy. There are no prerequisites for following the modules. It is up to the student to check that he/she has the necessary background knowledge by reading the module presentation sheet.

Each module contains approximately two hours of teaching plus case studies and exercises depending on the subject.

The structure of the module is according to European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) requirements and awards Certificates of Attendance. Certificates can be converted into university or professional credits if agreements are in place with Consortium universities. 

Participation in the modules is free of charge.

You are only required to fill in the entry test, once registered in the platform, to be directed to a selection of modules adapted to your needs.
