Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Design Engineering

University of Prince Edward Island
Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 Canada Charlottetown

The program follows current trends in engineering education and focuses on student outcomes. Small class sizes within an activity-based learning environment allow faculty and staff to be student-centric and to provide specific and timely input to individual students. [+]

Bachelors in Engineering Design in North America 2017. The School of Sustainable Design Engineering at UPEI offers a progressive and innovative four-year Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Sustainable Design Engineering) degree which recognizes the need for a broad and balanced engineering education. The program follows current trends in engineering education and focuses on student outcomes. Small class sizes within an activity-based learning environment allow faculty and staff to be student-centric and to provide specific and timely input to individual students. Students are exposed to a broad base of knowledge and skills in engineering science, natural science, mathematics, and complementary studies in concert with an applied project-based design stream simulating the engineering profession. Students entering the degree program will be actively engaged in the profession of engineering from day one, providing creative and sustainable solutions to society’s problems. The degree program is designed to provide a highly flexible learning environment that is responsive to the dynamic needs of students and the industries that employ them. In addition to fundamental science, engineering science and mathematics courses, students are required to develop skills in engineering design, communication, analysis, project management, professional ethics and more. With a solid grounding in these fundamentals, students in Program Years 3 and 4 can enhance their technical knowledge by choosing one of three engineering focus areas: Mechatronics (MT), Sustainable Energy (SE), or Bioresources (BR). This program is specifically structured to maximize flexibility and mobility for students looking to complete a degree in any engineering discipline. The first two years of the degree program are common with those of our partner institutions. This allows, for instance, students with a Diploma in Engineering from one of the Dalhousie University Associated Universities to transfer into the third year of the Sustainable Design Engineering degree. Similarly, students seeking a degree in a more traditional engineering discipline can complete the first two years of their studies at UPEI before transferring to Dalhousie or the University of New Brunswick to complete their degree. Engineered by Design It is increasingly recognized that understanding basic science and mathematics are only two of the many areas that are essential to professional engineering practice. Engineering students in this program must make responsible decisions based on good judgment and an ability to justify decisions within a structured analytical framework. Based on this generalist philosophy, this program is designed to develop a student’s ability to think. This fundamental requirement of engineers to think critically in response to ever-changing and complex situations is accomplished through a design stream core which relies heavily on inquiry-based learning supported by traditional lecture-based knowledge. The progression in complex thinking skills occurs over the duration of the four-year program and beyond through appreciation of lifelong learning and professional development. An integrated, project-based professional practice (PBPP) stream provides an applied foundation where students work on real community and industry-based projects in every semester of their program. Traditional content courses are delivered via an integrated and timely approach with the PBPP courses so that professional practice skills are developed in a simulated workplace environment. This program emphasizes design as an essential element of engineering as reflected in the Community Design Program (Year 1), and the Junior Design (Year 2) and Senior Design (Years 3 and 4) Clinics.

The Profession Interior designers are qualified by education, experience and professional licensure to enhance an environment’s function, safety and overall appeal. The professional interior designer is integral in the planning, design and construction of today’s complex built environments and collaborates with architects, engineers, general contractors and other professionals. The Program As the demand for interior designers continues to grow, students with baccalaureate degrees are also increasingly in demand. Seminole State's Bachelor of Applied Science in Interior Design puts students on the path to licensure and a professional career in interior design. Interior designers work closely with architects, engineers and general contractors in a wide array of settings. Employment opportunities span from the familiar private practice role to corporations across many industry sectors, ranging from retail and restaurant establishments, healthcare and government facilities, commercial and residential real estate development to the many furniture and decor supply chain companies. These firms hire interior designers to create environments that not only enhance sales and customer experience, but also create a more productive and pleasing work environment. This program has an art-based curriculum that combines the concepts and philosophies of the social sciences with the technical skills required to communicate within this design profession. Students will learn design theory, architectural design, space planning, aesthetics, sustainable "green" design, materials and methods of construction, life safety and building codes, professional ethics and practices, interior finish products and materials, and both oral and visual communication. The comprehensive curriculum provides a complete educational foundation for this profession. Upon completion of the B.A.S. Interior Design degree and two years of work experience, graduates are eligible to take the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) examination for state licensure. As the practice of interior design becomes ever more complex and technical, it is increasingly important for designers to have a solid educational base with a pathway to licensure. Having obtained skills critical to the industry, graduates of this program will be able to work in a wide variety of design occupations. Why Seminole State? Path to licensure: The bachelor’s degree is state approved for our graduates to sit for the state licensing exam. Industry-driven curriculum: The curriculum reflect current client needs and trends, such as sustainable design practices, ergonomics, universal design and aging in place. Industry-focused faculty: All full-time interior design faculty are Florida-licensed professionals who are actively involved in the industry. Award-winning facilities: Classes are taught at the College's award-winning Heathrow Campus, which is also the base for other design-related degrees. Award-winning students: The program is nationally recognized, and students have consistently won national and regional industry awards. Community involvement: You can participate in community projects, visit major construction sites and design centers, and join the student chapters of the American Society of Interior Designers, International Interior Design Association and the Emerging Green Builders. Career Opportunities Interior design is among the fastest-growing occupations in the region, with projected growth of 20 percent over the next decade. Students with a bachelor's degree in interior design can pursue careers in: "Aging-in-Place" Design Barrier-Free/Universal Design Commercial Interior Design Facilities/Project Management Government/Institutional Design Healthcare/Assisted Living Facilities Design Hospitality/Entertainment Design Kitchen/Bath Design Residential Interior Design Retail Design/Visual Merchandising/Exhibit Design Sales/Manufacturer Representative Space Planning/Specification Sustainable/Environmental Design Program Admission Applicants seeking admission to Seminole State College's bachelor's degree programs must comply with the College's General Admissions procedures.
