Program Requirements

The green technologies diploma program shares a set of core courses that can be registered and followed at any of the joint universities. Each major specialization will also include a number of required specialization courses and one or two elective courses depending on the major. The admission procedures, teaching and examination regulations and academic calendars at universities are carefully coordinated. The program will include a major e-learning format through blended and online offering of courses.

The required core courses of the program provide solid foundation in both technical and economic aspects of green technologies in Energy, Buildings, and Water, allowing the student to simultaneously understand advances in selected green technologies and their interrelations with market economy, policy and energy laws. The specialization courses consist of more in depth development of expertise in the selected major through a number of specialization courses selected in the major, elective courses, and a graduation project.

The program is offered online for most courses except for the elective labs*.
Each semester you can register up to 5 or 6 credit however you can follow at your own pace.

The diploma can be completed in 12-18 months. The student has up to 3 years to complete the diploma.

Students may enroll and earn a diploma in two specializations. To fulfill the basic requirement for the double specialization, a student must complete a minimum of 8 credit hours of graduate course work over and above the requirements for the first specialization. This will include 6 credits in the second specialization as well as 2 credit hours for a project. The minimum total credit hours for a double specialization in green technologies diploma would be 26 credit hours.

For a diploma in three specializations, a student must complete a minimum of 8 credit hours of graduate course work over and above the requirements for the two other specializations. This will include 6 credits in the third specialization as well as 2 credit hours for a project. The minimum total credit hours for a triple specialization in green technologies diploma would be 34 credit hours.

* There are three lab sessions that are not virtual and these can be taken by students living abroad through TeamViewer; however, they are not mandatory and the diploma can be completed 100% online.
