The intent of this certificate program is to provide students the opportunity to focus their elective studies in the area of energy and technology in architecture. This is accomplished through courses and design studio(s) that are focused on building energy systems along with other building systems.
The program’s aims are:
- To provide educational opportunities for architecture graduate students who wish to acquire knowledge and skills in the design and operation of building systems at site and building levels, with an emphasis on energy and materials.
- To advocate for the importance of energy efficiency over the entire life cycle of a building.
- To make our students more competitive in the fields of architectural practice, building engineering, and construction.
