Skills Upgrading Programme for Green Building Practitioners - (12) Noise and Vibration in Sustainable Built Environment

Collaboration Partner: School of Energy and Environment, City University of Hong Kong

This training programme has been designed to provide CPD education that is more in-depth and structured than traditional talks or seminars. Graduates in employment or experienced practitioners in the industry can construct individual programme of weekend studies that meet their own needs. Whether you would like to look for a focused treatment of an area beyond your first degree, a knowledge update in an area subject to rapid changes, a re-orientation to areas new to your scope of experience, or simply a broadening of knowledge, there are a variety of subject courses that meet your needs.

The programme offers a wide range of subject choices that span across key elements in the topic of green or sustainable building, including energy and carbon, indoor environment, outdoor environment, community aspects, materials and waste, building maintenance as well as climate change.

Taught by experienced faculty from the School of Energy and Environment at the City University of Hong Kong, this programme will also serve as an ‘appetiser’ for those considering to pursue post-graduate studies. Upon completion of the courses, participants will be able to gain a basic understanding of the subjects, which serves as a good foundation for further studies.

(12) Noise and Vibration in Sustainable Built Environment

This module will introduce students to the fundamentals of sound, vibration and noise. Participants will learn about the basic science, engineering strategies and key regulations in Hong Kong related to noise and vibration.

What to cover: Sound, vibration and noise, hearing and the human response to noise and vibration, environmental noise, acoustics of the built environment, noise and vibration control

Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the module, participants will be able to perform basic noise calculations and recommend solutions for common noise and vibration problems in the built environment. 

Date: 5 Feb & 19 Feb 2022 (Sat)

Time: 9:30am - 12:45pm (Registration starts at 9:15am)

Venue:  The programme will be conducted via Zoom.
