About the Program

This program will educate post-baccalaureate students with the knowledge and skills necessary for assessing the state of existing buildings or designing new buildings through the lens of promoting healthy indoor environments and well-being of building occupants. It combines courses on indoor air quality, indoor airflow, outdoor pollution (which is transported indoors), and/or risk assessment to provide students with the engineering toolkit to conduct meaningful work in the healthy buildings and health-promoting HVAC industry markets. This certificate is responsive to the newly disseminated understanding of the role buildings play in reducing indoor disease transmission and elevating occupant performance and satisfaction. The certificate will train professionals such as architectural, environmental, civil, and mechanical engineers who do or want to work in the healthy buildings industry.
