The Sustainable Building Technology (SCMT) program is a two-year diploma program, based at the Centre of Excellence at Okanagan College's Penticton campus. SCMT is a forward-thinking program designed to enable, empower and inspire the emerging generation of construction managers and technologists to deliver true sustainable development. The graduating students will play a leading role in the construction industry - both in Canada and internationally - to deliver projects that achieve high sustainability performance and contribute to the economic, environmental, and social well-being of communities.
The program will provide learners with the technical, business and interpersonal skills required to effectively manage construction projects of varying size and complexity, emphasizing sustainable design principles. Students will develop the technical knowledge and skills required to construct all scales of infrastructure projects - from planning through to completion. Students will also learn to estimate material requirements, costs, schedule and manage construction projects.
