Mumbai (1)

A new course on green buildings has been launched by Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, in the state of Gujarat, in India. The short-term programme, set to be run by the university’s Centre for Lifelong Learning and Extension (CLLE), recently began running admission procedures.

The certificate programme is the first of its kind in the university’s state. The course is aimed at graduates, and is set to run for three hours on weekdays.

N. K. Ojha, an engineer from the university and one of the teaching faculties of the programme, explained that the curriculum is divided in two modules: Theory and practical. He added that the curriculum is designed in such a way that it teaches the essentials of a smart city. Finally, he mentioned that several green building projects are currently underway on the university’s campus.

Currently, 30 students are planned to be enrolled into the programme.

The course will teach a variety of areas, such as sustainable designing, water and energy conservation, material and resources, indoor environment quality and innovation, and design processes. Ojha added that the certificate course presents an opportunity for graduates, especially architects and civil engineers, to grow in their careers. “Now, it has become inevitable to incorporate green concepts in the field of construction and designing” he remarked.

Registration for the programme closes on June 15th.
