Dear all,
I wanted to share this with you, and please feel free to share it with your

The Dublin School of Architecture, DIT Bolton Street, is seeking
applications from building professionals to join a free postgraduate course
in the design of buildings to meet the Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB)
performance standard.

The initial delivery of the 10-credit postgraduate module, entitled
‘Professional Energy Skills in NZEB’, is being supported by EU funding,
with the first cohort commencing in January 2016.

This course is being piloted in ten centres across Europe in preparation
for a full commercial rollout to all building professionals in the EU in
advance of the 2020 deadline for implementing the NZEB energy performance
standard for all buildings.

This Professional Energy Skills in NZEB course has been developed as part
of an EU Horizon 2020 funded project called ‘Meeting of Energy Professional
Skills’ (MEnS). This module is aimed at architects, engineers, building
surveyors and architectural technologists. Learning will take place in a
multi-disciplinary environment with much of the course materials will be
