Society faces significant population growth challenges while we seek to decarbonize, adapt to climate change and manage resources in a more sustainable manner. Meeting these challenges means buildings, energy systems and infrastructure must evolve – yesterday’s solutions are being replaced by new approaches.

The unique Sustainable Energy and Building Technology advanced diploma program at Humber College prepares graduates to examine, model and improve the energy and environmental performance of existing buildings; to support the design, construction and operation of new, sustainable buildings being built to increasingly stringent performance standards; to implement renewable energy technologies; and to support new approaches to understanding and managing energy use and building resilience into campuses, neighbourhoods or whole cities. At one time we paid little attention to the cost, availability or environmental impact of energy use – today, these are issues of growing importance to individuals, business and government.

Courses include:

  • CADD Fundamentals
  • Energy Metrics
  • Electric Circuits
  • Sustainable Buildings and Infrastructure
  • Technical Mathematics
  • Technical Reading and Writing Skills
