The Energy Management Technology program will provide graduates with skills for numeric quantification of energy-related projects and programs. The focus of study will be commercial systems with an introduction to industrial systems, and will position the graduate for a career in energy management beyond the residential and small commercial realm. Potential work capacities include energy manager or assistant, energy specialist/technician for energy engineering company, technical support for energy services performance contractor or energy services companies (ESPC / ESCO), facilities maintenance energy support specialist, commissioning provider technician, team member in the energy branch of construction contractor, energy technical support or sales position for a product manufacturer, building facilities manager, or building maintenance supervisor.

A cornerstone of the program is the understanding of building systems and their energy use characteristics. With this knowledge comes the ability to identify viable energy saving measures in buildings, communicate effectively with building occupants and owners, and calculate potential savings with good confidence. Additionally, graduates will be well prepared for the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) Certified Energy Manager program, a widely recognized credential in the industry. The curriculum has been pre-approved by AEE for their EMIT program (Engineering Manager In Training) which allows the graduate to take the technical test in advance of the required years of field experience, and use the designation EMIT by their name during the industry training period following graduation.
