LEED Certification

Students gain hands-on experience working with a simulator in the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, a LEED certified building on Main campus that receives about 30% of its energy from a solar panel field and wind turbines. The Brown Center hosts classes on solar power, biofuels, sustainable building construction, geothermal systems, light technology, and nanotechnology (Krebs, 2012).
