In today's building industry, the concept of integrated sustainable design has taken root and is branching out into full blossom. Green is in. Green is considered the responsible way to design. Integrated design is a process whereby the various professionals involved in design-architects, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, interior design professionals, etc.-work together to come up with design solutions that maximize performance, energy conservation, and environmental benefits.

In this course, the student will learn a wide variety of integrated sustainable concepts and practical ideas for building electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems. From design to facility operation, these principles will help with the integration of systems within various building types.
