The new online certificate explores LEED concepts

Drexel University Online, a leader in online degree programs, has added a new program to its offerings, the Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Green Construction from Drexel’s Goodwin College of Professional Studies.

The Certificate in Sustainability and Green Construction prepares professionals faced with the daunting task of providing a built environment that is in harmony with the natural environment, and the skills needed to meet the demands of the architectural, engineering and construction community. The program focuses on the sustainable aspects of the construction process and explores in great detail the concepts outlined in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating system. Graduates of the program are prepared to apply these concepts to the decision-making process across project teams.

Similar to Drexel’s other online degree programs and certificates, the Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Green Construction is offered entirely online, and is intended for working professionals looking to earn certification without career interruption. Students can learn anytime and anywhere, with 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion, instructor feedback and exams. With Drexel University’s online degree programs and certificates, students earn the exact same degree as on campus. Drexel University is ranked in 2010 as one of the nation’s top four most innovative universities by US News & World Report.

“We’re very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format” said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director for Drexel University Online. “All of our online programs, including our Graduate Certificate in Sustainability and Green Construction are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses.”
