​What is a Building Science Engineer?

Building science is a field of study concerned with the technical performance of buildings, building materials, and building systems. The area is broad enough to include construction technology, material science, urban design, architecture, heat and mass transport physics, meteorology, mycology, and structural design, to name a few. The field can be seen as the specialisation of infrastructure engineering applied to building systems.

Building science and engineering are applied to the design of new buildings, the repair and maintenance of the increasing stock of existing buildings, and the development of new building materials and technologies. The issue of sustainability, pollution, energy use, and health are becoming increasingly important.
