Sustainable Building Construction

Starting in 2020, BCT is offering a graduate certificate in sustainable building construction to professionals seeking an opportunity to pursue in-depth studies in sustainability in building design and construction without needing to complete a full degree program. This certificate’s topics are comprised of sustainable (green) building systems and materials, energy and conservation, building technologies, and construction management. 16 credits of coursework can be completed through a combination of in-person and online courses, with in-person courses offered in Amherst, Newton (on our Mount Ida campus) or both.

If you are considering applying to the Professional Masters in Sustainable Building Systems after completing the certificate, all 16 course credits will transfer toward your degree. Please note, however, that admission to the certificate does not guarantee admission to any of our graduate programs.
