The Graduate Certificate in Building Engineering is designed for practicing engineers who wish to specialize in one or more of the following sub-disciplines: Building Science, Building Envelope, Construction Management, Energy Efficiency, Building Environment, Rehabilitation of Urban Infrastructure and Facility Management. The program has 4 courses (16 credits) that can be completed in 2 semesters of part-time study. Students in the bachelor program whose academic records satisfy the requirements for good standing in the Master’s Program in Building Engineering may apply for transfer to the MEng or MASc program.
-The program can be completed in one year. Students with high standing in their bachelor program and whose academic records satisfy the requirements for good standing in the Master’s Program in Building Engineering may apply for transfer to the Master’s program.
-Core courses for which credits have been credited to another certificate or program must be replaced by elective courses in the area of concentration or by other courses on special permission.
