Course 1. Application and Use of New Technologies

Its objective is for students to develop a holistic vision of all the systems that make up a building; it will be understood, for example, how a properly selected air conditioning system can positively impact the sizing of the electrical system and how a well-planned control system can solve the operation of the building, so adequately that the implemented systems will be used in optimum conditions, which will be reflected in savings of up to 30% on the energy bill; all of the above as a result of good decision making in the planning stage prior to design.

In the lessons of the present course 1. of the MEGE program, we will find multiple case studies that seek to transmit the student a critical sense and provide a vision that leads him to acquire a comprehensive awareness of the operation of engineering systems.

  • Case studies and real success stories.
  • Online advice for students, which allows them to assimilate the contents in an agile and efficient way.
  • Evaluations of each lesson, with practical questions that support the student in the consolidation of knowledge.
  • The content will be complemented with forums and webinars dictated by the most important specialists in the country on topics such as energy, air conditioning, automation, monitoring, control and Internet of things, renewable sources, energy efficiency standards ISO 50001 and Energy Star.

Course 2. Automation, Control and Internet of Things (IoT)

Practical content in which Logical Controllers, Frequency Variators, Specific Use Controllers and new technology devices will be co-designed for Buildings and Industries.

  • Programming and start-up of automation systems in model areas of real buildings.
  • Programs to run in Runtime mode in typical buildings previously selected.
  • Case studies and real success stories.
  • Online advice for students, which allows them to assimilate the contents in an agile and efficient way.
  • Evaluations of each lesson, with practical questions that support the student in the consolidation of knowledge.
  • The content will be complemented with forums and webinars dictated by the most important specialists in the country on topics such as energy, air conditioning, automation, monitoring, control and Internet of things, renewable sources, energy efficiency standards ISO 50001 and Energy Star.

Course 3. Application and International Standards for Energy Management


This practical module is based on the ISO 50001 Standard, it focuses on teaching skills to: Develop a more efficient energy use policy, set objectives to comply with the energy policy, use data that allow a better understanding and make decisions related to the use of energy and its consumption, measuring the results. 

  • Working groups will be defined and each group is assigned one (1) building to develop the energy audit. There is an option for participants to develop their own case study.
  • The same working groups in Section 3.1.6 will continue with the assigned case study.
  • The learning of this International Standard will be based on the ISO Standard: Plan - Do - Check - Act
  • Practical cases.
  • Classes with specialists.

Course 4. Automation, Control and Internet of Things (IoT)

In new buildings, the use of a well-planned acquisition process, based on energy efficiency, including an energy goal and an adequate project delivery approach, will guarantee that the owners can be sure that their projects will have well-integrated systems, with cost-effective efficiency strategies and renewable technologies that will achieve the proposed objectives.

  • This practice will consist of developing a simulation of the evaluation of the energy performance matrix of a building and then starting the implementation of the seven steps that lead to obtain a high energy performance building capable of obtaining an Energy Star certification.
  • Documents and Energy Star guides that have been translated by Enerion.
  • For the development of this Workshop the tools of Enerion App and Thermostat App will be used.
  • For the development of this Workshop, the "How-To-Guide for Energy-Performance-Based Procurement" guides developed during the construction of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) of the United States Department of Energy (DOE) will be used.

Module 5. Financing and Evaluation of Technology Projects and Energy Efficiency in Buildings

One of the challenges faced by the promoters of energy efficiency projects is to determine how to transform ideas into solid project proposals and obtain the necessary financing for their execution. The right formulation of project ideas that meet the needs of suppliers of financial resources, public and private, is an important element to overcome market barriers

  • Working groups will be defined and each group is assigned one (1) building to develop the energy audit. There is an option for participants to develop their own case study.
  • The same working groups in Section 3.1.6 will continue with the assigned case study.
  • The learning of this International Standard will be based on the ISO Standard: Plan - Do - Check - Act
