This master thesis presents an effort towards integrating building technology content in architectural education. The effort is being undertaken within the framework of an international project targeting improvement in architectural education ("Integrative Multidisciplinary People-centered Architectural Qualification & Training"). This three-year project is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and aims to educate architects capable of initiating a paradigm shift toward a more integrative, multidisciplinary, people-centered, and technologically agile professional profile. Aspects of building technology in general and building performance assessment in particular are of course entailed in most architectural schools' curricula. Nonetheless, the background research of previous efforts and the preparatory work (gap analysis) for the development of a curricular proposal, which included views and opinions from both students and faculty of multiple schools, point to a number of shortcomings in this area. The present curricular development effort intends to address some of these shortcomings. Thus, natural and human sciences, aided by information and communication technologies, are deployed in a context-sensitive manner to encounter the challenges associated with sustainable human settlements. A consortium of expert partners in their fields of specialization (Architecture and Urban Design, Structural and Construction Systems, Building Physics and Building Ecology, Human Behavior) from Europe and Egypt came together to realize this vision. In this context, the present thesis first provides a summary representation of the results of the aforementioned gap analysis. Subsequently, the focus lies in the development of a building performance track. The sequence of the components of this track is explained in detail, along with its relationship to the curriculum's other thematic tracks. Specifically, the intellectual underpinnings of the structure and content of the building performance simulation course projected to acquire a special strategic position within the building performance track is explained. A performance-based design workflow would enable architecture students to approach design as an iterative process to balance energy and carbon reduction targets with indoor environmental quality objectives.
