Integrated Residential Builder A.A.S.

This program integrates building science applications for energy performance (Passivhaus, zero energy ready home-DOE, Energy Star Rated) and multidisciplinary approaches from ecology, agriculture, architecture and construction into a two-year program. This program prepares you to design, build, integrate, and maintain renewable and traditional energy systems. You’ll develop an in-depth understanding of inhabitant science concepts along with orientation, use, and energy auditing skills, which allow you to perform site assessments. Graduates of this program have a working knowledge of a variety of sustainable energy technologies including solar, permaculture design, building envelope, and heating/cooling system alternatives. Our mission to design sustainable human environments puts human social and economic benefit on par with our aesthetic and environmental aims.
