Centre for Advanced Research and Building Science and Energy (CARBSE), CRDF strives to achieve excellence in the area of Habitat and Energy. CARBSE is a part of CEPT University and has been functioning under the aegis of CEPT Research and Development Foundation for the last fifteen years. CARBSE carries out in-depth research in the fields of energy-efficient building design, energy efficient building construction, environment-friendly construction materials, along with resource audit and management. CARBSE operates out of a Net Zero Energy Building and has developed a state-of-art laboratory to develop innovative solutions for high performance buildings, specific to thermal comfort, along with affordable materials, construction, and low energy cooling technologies. Currently, CARBSE has active research collaborations with researchers located in Australia, Germany, United Kingdom, United States of America and South Asia.
The aim of the CARBSE Visiting Scholar program is to provide a platform to enhance knowledge in the field of Building Energy Performance through envelope and HVAC systems, Net-Zero Energy Buildings, Thermal Comfort, Urban Energy, Information Technology in buildings, and similar emerging areas. CARBSE Visiting Scholar Program is for in-service professionals, practicing professionals (architects/engineers), senior academicians or early career researchers who have a background in conducting research and are willing to participate in the research activities of CARBSE. The program will span between three (3) months minimum to twelve (12) months. The visiting scholar is expected to conduct research in the focus areas of CARBSE resulting in the journal publication, guidebook, teaching content, tools and techniques.
