EXAM DESCRIPTION

Oral exam (by appointment), after having carried out a paper concerning the energy certification of a building and the design of the related improvements, an acoustic design of buildings component for a renovation intervention and the preparation of a calculation sheet for noise propagation in ducts. The activities related to the acoustic part will be carried out in groups.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The assessment of the students' understanding of the topics studied will be verified through the language used, the knowledge of the subject and the ability to deepen the covered topics.
