Prepare for a career that addresses sustainability in the built environment by pursuing one of two master’s degrees in sustainable building systems. 

The professional master’s program in sustainable building systems is a one-  or two-year program. This non-thesis option offers both classroom and hands-on learning opportunities and may be a great option for you if you are pursuing a career as an architect, engineer, builder, construction manager, building official, or design and construction professional. 

The research master’s program in sustainable building systems might be a good fit if you wish to eventually pursue a PhD program in sustainable building systems. Choose from specializations in wood engineering and bio-based building materials or building science and green building, while expanding your knowledge of energy systems, material strength modeling, management/marketing of building materials, construction management, and digital design.
