    Module Aim(s): In modern society, people spend most of their time in indoors.  Since 1990s indoor air quality (IAQ) engineering has become a multidisciplinary practice, and IAQ has become one of the key objectives of a healthy building design.  The module provides an overview of the indoor air quality (IAQ) and its multi-disciplinary nature in a built environment.  Strategies for controlling and maintaining good IAQ are also presented for the planning and operation in facility management.
    Learning Outcomes: On completion of this Module, students are expected to be able to:
    1. relate the major factors affecting IAQ and the associated health impact and health risks of indoor air pollution;
    2. identify parameters governing good IAQ for building environment design;
    3. examine the design, operation and maintenance practices in relation with IAQ objectives;
    4. investigate problematic buildings syndromes and recommend mitigation measures from an IAQ practitioner’s perspective;
    5. incorporate IAQ management in an overall facility management scheme; and
    6. cooperate with teammates in a multidisciplinary team to resolve emerging IAQ problems.
