Architectural Conservation and Sustainability Engineering

Architectural Conservation and Sustainability Engineering

In a world where sustainability is becoming a guiding principle, there is a great need for engineers with expertise in the areas of heritage conservation and sustainable or green building design. Carleton’s program in Architectural Conservation and Sustainability Engineering teaches students to approach the design and retrofit of new and existing buildings with sustainability as the primary objective, which includes considering the life cycle costs and impacts of the materials selected, energy needs and consumption, and the effective reuse and adaptation of existing structures. Students in the program, working closely with Carleton’s architecture students, have the option of following a Structural stream or an Environmental stream after their second year.
