DASBE Vision

DASBE intends to upskill the building sector on a range of topics including low energy buildings design to the application of Virtual Reality in building surveying by providing programmes from Level 6 to Level 9 on the NFQ.

DASBE will create a Digital Platform to enable learners to undertake a range of programmes ranging from micro-accreditation (including digital badges), Special Purpose Awards (Certificates), and Minor and Major awards focusing on specific topics, needs and requirements in the sector. 

DASBE will utilise a network of national and international experts in the sustainable building sector thus enabling access to international research drawn from DASBE network of collaborators. DASBE will also connect past, current and future R&D activities with education and training activities to ensure that participants and learners are exposed to leading expertise, knowledge and data with relevant fields.
