ENS 227      Introduction  to Green (Resource Efficient) Commercial and Industrial Buildings                                                                                                                                    (3   Credits )     

The course focuses on these principles:   an  efficient building is economically and environmentally prudent; there is fiscal  value inherent in energy management, and resource consumption that also keeps  the environment intact. The course provides an in- depth exploration of  environmental, social, and political values from different perspectives.  Scientific and technical considerations are balanced by behavioral and social  aspects when issues of efficiency, conservation, and resource management are  addressed. This course lays a strong foundation for students who are interested  in entering the emerging field of energy management. Several career paths are  discussed in the course.
