Green building is a rapidly developing field that is an important tool in efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, improve air and water quality, enhance urban biodiversity, and conserve natural resources. These steps are necessary to maximize both economic and environmental performance in built environments. Despite the cyclical nature of the construction industry, demand for Brussels Capital University BCT Bachelor Degree program graduates is strong in both the residential and commercial construction sectors. Graduates of the BCT program take on leadership roles with their understanding of this technically complex field. Students attend courses spanning science, technology, business and design to support the foundations to advance their careers. The design, construction and in-service use of residential and commercial buildings is complex, and Brussels Capital University BCT students are offered a wide variety of training to cover the essential elements of sustainable design and construction.
Brussels Capital University BCT graduates are involved in almost every field of the built environment: construction management, sustainable building planning, engineered timber design, building energy performance assessment, building products distribution, and research and development. They ensure that the materials and systems used in our buildings are best suited to the needs of each project in terms of safety, efficiency, sustainability and cost effectiveness. It is the integration of technical understanding with general business acumen that makes graduates of the Building and Construction Technology program uniquely desirable to employers.
Brussels Capital University provides training to BCT students who are enrolled in online distance education systems, with training videos and course documents included in distance education systems, and offers students the opportunity to practice and train at the construction site within the framework of internship agreements with important companies in the sector.
