New BCIT Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling

BCIT is offering a new Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling starting September 1, 2015.

Energy Modelling is an important area of specialization of Building Science; as such, the Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling builds on the strengths and success of the Building Science Graduate Program at BCIT with a focus on the fundamental heat, air, and moisture transport principles, and their application to building systems integration. Emphasis is placed on mechanical systems design, operation, and control; and their integration with the building envelope.

Students can expect to complete the Graduate Certificate in one academic year if they fast-track by registering in up to three courses per term, or complete the credential in two to three years if they take a lesser course load.

Admissions will be opening for applications soon. To be notified, please send an email to buildingscience@bcit.ca.
