Civil Technology: Sustainable Energy Management Concentration A.A.S.

Important Notice

The Civil Technology program is being discontinued and is not accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Currently enrolled students will have access to courses and resources until they graduate in May 2019. 

Program Overview

Beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year, the Civil Technology: Sustainable Energy Management Concentration program will no longer be accepting new students. Current Thompson School students in this program will continue to have access to the same high-quality education and resources until they graduate in 2019.

Energy efficiency and renewable/sustainable energy sources are topics at the forefront of today’s society. In the Sustainable Energy Management concentration, students learn the basics of sustainable and renewable energy sources, relevant energy management principles in the construction industry, minimizing our environmental impact, and the proper implementation of these energy options. Students will start with foundation courses to build a broad, interdisciplinary base of knowledge and skills in science, engineering, technology, design, analysis, and communication.  From the first semester, students have access to state-of-the-art mapping and surveying gear, advanced CAD, GIS, and 3D modeling software, as well as significant facilities and equipment used in traditional construction.  In keeping with the Thompson School’s heavy emphasis on experiential and field work, the program offers numerous hands-on experiences to apply concepts learned in the classroom.  Graduates of the Sustainable Energy Management concentration will have the necessary skills and experience to fill the green energy jobs of the future.
