Michigan school creates sustainable architecture program
on Wednesday,November 11,2009 21:11
Modern architecture embraces many styles of building, yet none is currently more popular than green building with a focus on sustainability. With this in mind, Michigan''s Ferris State University has announced plans to introduce a new undergraduate degree program in sustainable design.
Beginning in fall 2010, the Bachelor of Science in architecture and sustainability program, a degree offered through the school''s College of Engineering Technology, will create nine new courses focusing exclusively on ecological building strategies and implementation in addition to the traditional architectural course curriculum.
Sustainable architecture attempts to minimize the negative environmental impact that a building may have through use of eco-friendly building material and schematics designed to increase the efficiency of any particular structure.
Representatives of the university were optimistic about the new program.
"(The program) will educate students on real-world issues of green building," claims Engineering Dean Tom Oldfield. "(It will) give them experience in applying" green building techniques.
The program will give prospective architects training in a field that many analysts feel will be the future of the architecture industry.
