Inside the Syetem Repost: Introducing the Autodesk Building Performance Analysis (BPA) Certificate Program

Repost from Inside the System

Building Performance Analysis Certificate Program imag

We’re excited to announce that Autodesk has launched the Building Performance Analysis (BPA) Certificate Program. This free online course for architecture and engineering students teaches the building science fundamentals for designing high-performance buildings. Through self-paced online tutorials, quizzes and Autodesk software exercises, the BPA Certificate Program gives students the skills to help drive an industry-wide transition to performance-based sustainable design.
 What’s in the BPA Certificate program?
  • Seven modules that include climate analysis, sun path studies, building massing and orientation, solar radiation analysis, wind analysis, and more.
  • Clear “introduction to software” section within each of the seven modules
  • Small clusters of content and quizzes that students can complete in short amounts at a time
  • Case-based examples and questions
  • Content focused on energy fundamentals and modeling with detailed Revit models
  • Application of Revit-based tools (including Revit, Vasari and Green Building Studio)
This program takes an estimated 20 hours to complete. Following successful completion, students are issued a Certificate and a Badge that they can place on their resume, LinkedIn profile or portfolio. Students will improve and prove their fluency in the strategies and tools of sustainable building design.
