I have recently completed my Bachelor of Science in building science and sustainable design. And now am actively looking for work in the field, before I go on for my MA. Architecture.
Pennsylvania College of Technology, BArch, Building Science and Sustainable Design
The Building Science and Sustainable Design major promotes a healthier, more energy efficient way to build which reduces negative environmental impacts and slows the depletion of natural resources. Students study sustainable approaches to materials, construction, site design, building design, and the generation of energy. In addition, students receive training in building science fundamentals related to the measurement of building performance. Students also learn skills vital to historic preservation and the renovation and re-use of existing buildings. Graduates should be equipped with the knowledge to design and/or construct buildings that make positive contributions to their communities. The program is based upon students' completion of an applied technology curriculum. Applied technology degrees in areas such as HVAC, Electrical Technology, Business Management, and Information Technology will be considered for the directed elective requirements of the transfer major.
