Sustainable Building Technology Curriculum

Building sustainably is no longer an option but a necessity. Increasing population across the globe demands that the design and construction industry deliver more efficient buildings that consume less of the earth's resources.

Sustainable Building Technology students learn the basic principles of structural and mechanical systems, building codes and regulations, material assemblies and construction methods—all with the objective of achieving high performance buildings that meet today's needs without compromising those of the future. Students are exposed to an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to "green" buildings. The curriculum stresses design resilience, natural resource conservation, and sustainable design and building practices. This course of study prepares students with the practical skills needed to succeed in their career path.

The Design Studies Practicum helps students connect their studies to applications in the workplace.
