Architecture has been incorporating sustainable products in order to achieve "green" certifications. The Hogan Center at the Alma College in Michigan, has recently been recognized for its renovations, according to the Morning Sun.

The new renovation of the center has recently received the Land Environment Economics and Development (LEED) certification. The LEED is issued to buildings that deem eco-friendly by the U.S. Green Building Council and the Green Building Certification Institute.

"From the very beginning of the Hogan project, we committed to designing the facility to be our first LEED-certified building for sustainable construction," the Alma College President Jeff Abernathy told the news provider.

The building received the certification because of their sustainable energy usage including lighting, water and materials, the news source reports.

After architecture design students finish their programs, there is a good chance that they will be able to snag a job. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job market in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
