Credential Awarded:Ontario College Graduate Certificate

Program Description

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.
