Carleton’s Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Architectural Conservation and Sustainability Engineering program is a joint initiative between our Department and the School of Architecture to educate our undergraduate students in the preservation and conservation of our heritage and historical infrastructure as well as in the design of energy-efficient and environmentally friendly new buildings.
This program provides a unique and innovative focus in a multidisciplinary program that blends both engineering and architectural studies. Sustainable development and heritage conservation have become guiding principles for our modern industrial society. With increased awareness of the importance of economic, social and environmental sustainability, expertise in sustainable green building design and heritage conservation is now in high demand. Skilled civil and environmental engineers apply their knowledge in sustainability to the design and retrofit of both new and existing buildings, considering areas such as life cycle costs, impacts of selected materials, and energy needs and consumption. They also bring their expertise to the burgeoning field of conservation, as more buildings receive various levels of heritage designation and are in need of repair and adaptation This new innovative program provides students with the opportunity to study within a top-notch engineering faculty as well as be enriched by the program’s close association with Carleton’s well-known architecture program.
