The undergraduate building technology sequence (uBTS) seeks to impart a broad understanding of environmental systems through a variety of research and simulation techniques including direct observation, traditional calculations and scientific method, and advanced modeling and evaluation software. The integration of the uBTS sequence with studio project work and engagement with the larger inter-institutional research efforts encourages strong student engagement and early mastery of advanced skills. This paper will discuss the above general themes through specific laboratory case studies which are tied to key points in the three year uBTS.
