T he Faculty of Built Environment (FBE) offers five undergraduate professional programmes tailored to meet the nation’s construction and real estate sectors’ manpower needs. All these programmes are accredited at the national and international levels. For example, its Bachelor of Science in Architecture has been accredited as Part I by the Board of Architects Malaysia (LAM) while its 2-year Bachelor of Architecture program leads to Part II recognition by the Board. The same programmes have also been accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA, UK), leading to Part I and Part II, accreditation respectively.

CNN-iReportA low-cost alternatine to Low-E Glazing

We, at the Dept. of Architecture, Faculty of the Built Environment,
University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, have discovered
a low cost alternative to the use of expensive low-emissivity glass
used in office buildings to prevent heat egress into the office space.
We propose a thin film of a sustainable flowing water film on a
cheap ordinary glazing to provide the same or better
solar-thermal and solar-optical values as compared to expensive
solutions. The water film acts as a lens to allow more daylight into
the space while cutting down the heat transmission. The
results have been published in peer-reviewed international journal.
The research has led to a successful Doctoral thesis at the University
of Malaya. The flowing water film could come from simple rain water
harvesting systems.
