What is a Smart Building?

SBT program inforgraphic 400x400

Smart buildings deliver essential automated building services such as lighting, cooling and heating, and air quality, at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle.  In order for smart buildings to run at maximum efficiency, the buildings must be maintained by skilled, technology-savvy facilities managers and technicians, trained on digital automated maintenance systems. 

The City of Boston is filled with smart buildings; but there aren’t enough technicians trained on smart building technology to ensure that the buildings are running properly.  Our SBT Program will provide you with the skills and certifications needed to fill these in-demand jobs.

Associate Degree Program

Students who enroll roll in the associate degree program will learn how to:

  • Use smart building technology to collect and analyze efficiency data
  • Build, install, repair and maintain digital energy conservation systems
  • Program technology to enhance overall energy efficiency
