Engineering & Sustainability Services
Engineering and Sustainability serves the university in a variety of critical functions. First, we provide engineering expertise regarding new construction, renovation projects, utility systems and energy projects. In addition, the department establishes the campus Strategic Energy Plan (SEP). This plan develops the long term goals and objectives for overall energy reduction on campus thereby saving tens of millions of dollars over time. Secondly, the department provide sustainability expertise for the campus as well. This includes Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) development for new and existing buildings, greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) assessments and the very critical Climate Action Plan (CAP). The CAP is the strategic mechanism that establishes the systematic approach toward campus climate neutrality. In addition, the department is responsible for the development and expansion of the campus recycling program. Lastly, the department provides a full complement of CAD and GIS services including drafting, archival, photographic, utility master planning and geographic locating systems to support the long term mission of the university.
