Eric Teitelbaum

Assistant Professor Adjunct

Eric Teitelbaum is a thermal systems engineer and innovator, with a portfolio including wide array of projects focusing on novel systems for the built environment. He completed his dual degree Ph.D. in 2020 from Princeton University in Architecture and Material Science, researching how materials enable energy saving thermal comfort regimes beyond standard air-based methods. He has applied his thermal comfort framework to many projects including a Department of Energy integrated dehumidification facade and several patents on sensing and construction of radiant systems. He is passionate about encouraging students to design comfort systems recursively with traditional architectural elements for producing energy efficient buildings at any scale.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
