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. 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 program is intended to explore these concepts in detail.
The M.S. in Construction Management with a concentration in Sustainability and Green Construction consists of advanced study in subjects essential to developing highly competent practitioners.
