The Energy specialization in the Green Technology Diploma program provide in depth knowledge in renewable and alternative energy sources and their conversion and utilization in different forms in buildings and systems. It offers both quantitative and qualitative tools for design and evaluation of renewable energy systems for integration in building systems and industrial processes to improve performance and enhance sustainability.

The first part of the program is related to green tech application including renewable energy sources vs. conventional energy systems. Hybrid or stand-alone renewable systems’ design and project management will be addressed directly in the modules dealing with specific technologies.


Students specializing in Energy are required to complete a minimum of 6 and up to 8 credits courses as explained in the program description below.
