Would you like a career that benefits the environment and the people who live in it?
If you're interested in becoming a construction planner, or if you are currently working in a design or construction-related career, our Sustainable Design Certificate program is for you. Sustainable construction incorporates elements of economic efficiency, environmental performance and social responsibility and aims to meet the present day needs for housing, working environments and infrastructure without compromising the needs of future generations.
This certificate program will provide you with broad, transferable skills in planning, management, finance, technical and product skills, as well as an understanding of labor, community and environmental issues.
As the cost of energy and building materials rises, as well as concern for the environment, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that jobs in the field of sustainable design will increase by 17% between 2016 and 2022.
