Sustainable Energy Management


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.
