CAS ETH Regenerative Materials

Guillaume Habert, Head of the Chair of Sustainable Construction, ETH Zürich, is launching a new Certificate of Advanced Studies in "Regenerative Materials" dedicated to earth, bio-based materials and reuse materials.

The objectives are to teach the specificities of these low-carbon materials (supply, implementation, adapted architectural design, material properties, construction cost and planning, end-of-life, etc…) through practical experiments, inspiring examples (visits and guest lectures) and exercises based on real case study.

The team, composed of international experts (Wang Shu, Anna Heringer, Martin Rauch, Dominique Gauzin-Müller…) want to teach not only architects and engineers, but also members of city technical services, building contractors, NGOs, in order to globally raise skills in the low-carbon construction sector.

A first session will open in January 2020 (5 weeks of contact lectures during one semester). Courses will be hold in English in order to receive a Swiss and international public. A Master of Advanced Studies will open in January 2021 (2 semesters) and will go deeper into technical details.
