The LEED Lab course utilizes the campus’s built environment to educate and prepare students to become green building leaders. Students attain the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed to manage building certifications and sustainability projects.
LEED Lab Course Goals:
- Students facilitate the LEED certification audit for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) with the goal of certifying all campus buildings inside and out.
- Students who complete the lab course will be eligible to sit for professional certification exams to earn their LEED Green Associate & LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) certificates.
