Update for Fall of 2014:
The SDT program is transitioning to three integrated, interactive and practical Bachelor of Science degrees:
The Green Buildings Design degree focuses on the design of buildings and communities that can power themselves without fossil fuels, using efficiency and the energy of the sun, earth and wind.
The Renewable Energy degree integrates the study of engineering, technology, science and business to prepare graduates to design, implement, and manage renewable energy systems and similar technologies. Students learn to evaluate renewable resources, complete site assessments, design systems, model system performance, utilize data acquisition tools and integrate energy systems into landscapes, buildings and communities.
The Sustainable Land Use degree integrates the study of engineering, technology, science and business to prepare graduates to design, implement, and manage land use projects. Students learn to evaluate natural and cultural resources, perform site assessments, design conserved land and residential/commercial development projects, model system performance, utilize data acquisition tools, and integrate sustainability into land use and human practice.
Students enrolled in any of these three degrees take a common core of classes together during their first three years. In their senior year, cross-disciplinary teams of students from these three degrees work together again in two intensive, problem solving and design capstone courses.
Interested applicants should see the curriculum maps posted on the three degree pages linked above.
Students enrolled in the 2+2 SDT program should refer to the curriculum maps posted at the upper right.
