Energy Management - Built Environment
|Duration:||2 Semesters (8 Months)|
|Credential Awarded:||Ontario College Graduate Certificate|
Turn your training in engineering and life sciences into a successful career.
Energy Management – Built Environment (EMB) 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 recognized degree from an accredited institution in Engineering Technology or Life Sciences or three-year postsecondary diploma with a minimum of 3 years documented work experience. Relevant résumé and references must be provided.; OR
- Mature applicants with 3 to 5 years of documented work experience in a related field may be considered. Relevant résumé and references must be provided.
- English proficiency at the postsecondary level.
- Although not required for admission, computer literacy and ACad skills are recommended for your success in the program:
- Good computer literacy and ACad skills;
- Superior communication.
The Built Environment Business
In addition to an Ontario College Graduate Certificate in Energy Management – Built Environment, graduates will receive the Building Environment Systems – BES™ Operator 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 and environmental impact verification
- create a more energy–efficient and environmentally sustainable built environment
- leverage the energy savings from buildings.
