Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Green Construction


The architectural, engineering, and construction community faces the daunting task of providing a built environment which is in harmony with the natural environment — meeting the current needs of society without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainable development means integrating the decision-making process across the project team, so that every decision is made with an eye to the greatest long-term benefits.

The Certificate in Sustainability and Green Construction is a flexible, part-time post-baccalaureate program, focused on the sustainable aspects of the construction process. Students have the opportunity to complete all requirements within one and a half years.

Currently, in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system, the construction process represents a significant portion of the effort required to achieve high-performance building programs. This certificate program is intended to explore these concepts in detail.

Credits from this certificate will transfer towards a M.S. in Construction Management.
