San Diego is a hot bed of many things – military, biotech, hospitality and, most recently, Green or CleanTech. San Diego State, as the region’s largest university, makes great efforts to prepare our students to participate in the local business community in meaningful ways, which means preparing them to make significant contributions in those industries that make San Diego go.
From the many veterans programs on campus, which serve San Diego’s diverse veteran and active-duty military population, to the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, which helps drive San Diego’s vibrant tourism industry, we work closely with leaders in particular industries or population segments to ensure our students are well prepared.
As such, we’re also preparing students in the area of Clean Technologies. SDSU’s College of Extended Studies is offering several programs to meet those needs now. Kim Brauer from the College of Extended Studies recently wrote this for Jobing.com’s blog:
Another place to look for sustainability solutions is right here in town. San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies has led the nation in offering professional certificates in the green industry to train people who want to enter this fast-growing field. They now offer three certificate programs – Green Building Construction, Green Energy Management, and Sustainable Practices.
Take a look at these programs if you’re interested in getting your foot in the door in these growing sectors, or if you’d like to take the lead in green initiatives now – whether that means implementing cost effective energy improvements in your office or increasing the market value of your home with green improvements.
