The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Design (GCED) is a flexible course that will equip you with skills and knowledge to assess and improve environmental performance in the built environment. Through its multiple streams across all disciplines of the built environment, it allows you to tailor the course specifically to your needs.
The Green Building Council of Australia and the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) have engaged with the GCED and are helping guide the design of relevant streams and provide research data.
The 50 points Certificate is available in Semester 1 and 2 and is available part-time only (1 year to complete). The course is taught on-campus, in the Parkville campus of the University.
The program is taught by world-renowned academics in the field and capitalises on primary research data and activities led by these academics. There is a strong emphasis on industry-collaboration, notably through internships, networking opportunities and input from industry associations into the design of particular streams. The certificate will equip students with the skills and knowledge to design, build and operate the buildings and cities of tomorrow, for environmental performance.
