In the Sustainable Design program, students will investigate critical issues relating to the health, livability, and environmental condition of our built environment. Sustainable design principles and techniques will be explored at various scales to help shape a sustainable future.
Sustainable Design students have the opportunity to study a wide range of topics including high-performance building design, sustainable urban planning, and holistic natural resource conservation and management. In addition, students will gain a global perspective of how culture, climate, geography, and infrastructure play a key role in defining sustainable development practices. This breadth of inquiry allows students to pursue a course of study tailored to their own interests and career objectives
The Design Studies Practicum helps students connect their studies to applications in the workplace. More
