The SDC-Energy (SDC-E) track includes courses on design and construction of buildings and infrastructure systems to produce, distribute and consume energy sustainably.
SDC-E prepares students for careers in design and construction of building energy systems, renewable power generating systems and smart power grids connected to smart buildings and infrastructure, cleantech venture capital, sustainability-focused public policy, green real estate development,and sustainability management positions.
SDC-E includes courses from our department and several other departments at Stanford covering topics such as:
- Sustainable HVAC design and construction of small-scale and large structures
- Planning, design and construction of renewable power systems
- Sensing and control technologies to link integrated smart grids with intelligent buildings, data centers and infrastructure systems.
