Since the 1995/96 academic year, four Slovak universities (Slovak Technical University Bratislava, Technical University Kosice, Slovak Agricultural University Nitra and Technical University Zvolen) in cooperation with two EU universities (University of Strathclyde Glasgow and Eindhoven University of Technology) have prepared IT- based environmental simulation courses in the framework of the TEMPUS Structural Joint European Project S_JEP 09909-95. This project aims to develop and introduce building performance simulation courses that are integrated and highly interdisciplinary in their content, involving architecture, building engineering, environmental engineering and mechanical engineering. To achieve this aim, course materials are made available through the World Wide Web. In addition, the project required the establishment of IT laboratories, development of new courses, staff retraining, and collaboration with local industrial partners. This paper presents current results of TEMPUS project which is funded through European Training Foundation in Torino.
