Overview

Sustainable Building Technology Diploma

The Sustainable Building Technology at Okanagan offers an accelerated two-year or three-year curriculum that provides students with the foundation to prepare, inspire, and mobilize the next generation of building technologists. 

This program covers the principles, concepts, and practices of project design to completion through whole systems thinking and multidisciplinary approaches which collectively enable students to deliver sustainably built environments that enhance human well-being.

The program is organized through five core streams developed by the Sustainable Building Technology faculty and through consultation with industry representatives. 

These allow for specialized education within the field of sustainability and the built environment and include Sustainability, Building Design, Building Science and Systems, Construction Management, and Service Course streams. 

Together, these courses allow graduate students to pursue careers in the (re)design, management, and execution of existing and new building projects. 

In the final year, students work in small teams to solve challenging real-world problems proposed by community partners and college faculty.
