Daylight Simulations using Grasshopper Tools
A 2-week online certificate program to learn daylight simulation using Rhino + Grasshopper tools and assess compliance with Green Building rating systems
Explore computational tools to model, assess and optimize the daylight within buildings. Learn basic Rhino 3D modeling, daylight simulation script-building in Grasshopper, validating daylight compliance with LEED and ECBC while optimizing strategies for enhanced daylight performance. This training program will be conducted online in a unique blended learning format combining live webinar sessions with self-paced video lessons.
Work with the computational tools – Grasshopper with Rhino
Have know-how of environmental plug-ins (Ladybug and Honeybee)
Understand the impact of materials and RAD parameters on daylight performance
Understand the daylight simulation script in Grasshopper
Execute simulations for Daylight Factor, Point-in-time and Annual Daylight Illuminance
Execute compliance with LEED and ECBC daylight requirements
Assess design parameters for improved daylight performance
Validate design for compliance with LEED and ECBC
Technical knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper - parametric environmental design tools

What Are Our Participants Saying
"The Coordinators and Instructors were amazing."
-Heisnam Roni Singha
"I would like to appreciate the teaching methods and idea of sending recorded videos. It was clear and very helpful. The recorded videos helped me a lot to follow and practise when I was free because it was really difficult for manage my timings for the online webinar due to travel or meetings held in college."
"Fantastic course ! .. I had no previous of experience of working on Rhino, but with the way the course is executed, it was possible for me to learn basic daylighting and found myself wanting to explore the tool further."
-Lakshmi G Kamath
"Enjoyed working alongside the demo video, Questions made me understand the software better"
"Hi Team, Thank you for your time and knowledge sharing. I had tried a lot to learn daylighting simulation, but only through this course it was so clear and helpful. Thanks again!! It would be great if there would be advanced course in Rhino & Grasshopper in the future."
"I really like the easy and understandable pace of the program. For a person like me who is juggling between numerous things, it's hard to keep track of everything. I'm glad I can take my time with the course and complete it at my own pace"
