Teaching

courses taught

  • AREN 3010 - Energy Efficient Buildings
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Lecture course on the analysis and design of buildings and their systems to satisfy the requirements for a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. Examines psychometrics, thermal comfort, building heating and cooling loads, fluid flow basics, and HVAC components and systems.
  • AREN 4010 - HVAC System Modeling and Control
