DOE: Developing Curricula for Comprehensive Design and Construction of High-Performing Energy-Efficient Residential Buildings in Washington State

This proposal aims to advance the skills required by architects and engineers to design and construct residential buildings in the Pacific Northwest that are high-performing, energy-efficient, comfortable, and affordable. This will be achieved by developing curricula offered to students and professionals in three configurations, namely a 1-year master’s degree, an online undergraduate/ graduate certificate, and a variety of online continuing education units.
