Energy Management - Built Environment
|Duration:||2 Semesters (8 Months)|
|Start Dates:||Fall, |
Start dates are subject to change.
|Credential Awarded:||Ontario College Graduate Cetificate|
Turn your training in engineering and life sciences into a successful career.
Energy Management – Built Environment is a program designed to help you succeed in Canada’s environmental sector. Through eight months of intensive environmental training in building systems and energy management, you will be prepared for a career in the environmental sector.
The Built Environment:
Business priorities are changing as companies become more aware of green issues. There’s now a growing demand for professionals who can help businesses and individuals to reduce their environmental impact, carbon footprint, and energy use and costs. Seneca has created two leading–edge certificate programs to train these professionals – one focused on the Built Environment, and the other on the Natural Environment. The Built Environment can have a big effect on a company’s CO2 emissions and operating costs. As a graduate of EMB, you will be able to examine building structures and systems, create operating strategies for energy demand and supply, minimize operating costs and environment/energy impacts, and work within a building sciences engineering team to achieve new levels of energy efficiency.
- A three–year diploma or recognized degree from an accredited institution in Engineering Technology or Life Sciences, and/or Mature Student Status (age 19 or older) with 3 to 5 years of documented, related work experience.
- English proficiency at the college level.
- Although not required for admission, good computer literacy and ACad skills will be an asset.
- Superior communication skills will be an asset.
The Importance of Learning Skills:
Student success in college requires well developed learning skills (such as being able to work independently, participate in a team, be well-organized, develop good work habits, and show initiative). These skills are as important as prior academic achievement. While it is expected that applicants would have developed these skills through previous education and life experiences, Seneca offers support to assist students with further development of these important skills. Seminars, workshops and tutoring are available at Seneca's Learning Centres.
The Built Environment Business
In addition to an Ontario College Graduate Certificate in Energy Management – Built Environment, graduate will receive the BES Class II Certificate upon successful completion of this program. As a graduate of this program, you'll:
- Have a thorough understanding of the design of intelligent buildings to meet or exceed current energy and environmental standards;
- Have a complete understanding of the impact and integration of the various systems that condition our buildings;
- Apply state–of–the–art comprehensive integrated building design tools;
- Apply intelligent and integrated systems throughout the building’s life cycle;
- Perform detailed energy audits and facility condition assessments to identify energy and cost saving initiatives;
- Use comprehensive simulation tools to model building performance, and calculate energy savings and environmental benefits from savings initiatives;
- Understand the emerging marketplace for carbon trading, environmental impact verification;
- Create a more energy–efficient and environmentally sustainable built environment.
