“I would first like to say that I am proud to be from the first batch to have completed the credentials for the Pro-Green diploma at AUB. With my full-time job and busy life, the online platform has proven to be professionally challenging and rewarding as much as flexible and convenient for my tight schedule. Initially, I was a little unsure of how smooth a completely online engineering program would run; however, I was impressed with the quality of education and teaching methods. The professors have been knowledgeable, accessible, and approachable and their experiences enriched the course materials and our knowledge as a result. Before, I used to hear about green initiatives from time to time, but now thanks to Pro-Green I know how to live it. My decisions in life and career are shaped by what I learnt about being green.

This program has definitely been a career-changing experience for me! I would strongly recommend it to almost any working professional."

“I am happy and proud to have completed the online professional diploma in green buildings. It was a real challenge for me as a working professional married with two kids. My eagerness to continue my education in green and sustainability topics compelled me to join the diploma, and what captured my interest was not only the variety of topics the diploma offered, but also its flexibility and convenience with regards to my tight schedule. Moreover, ever since I pursued the diploma, I was able to acquire a deeper academic knowledge and incorporate it into my professional work. The diploma offered a wealth of courses that gave me the perspective needed to fully understand the green buildings concept. In addition, the technical trip to Italy and Sweden where I visited solar and wind farms, net zero and energy plus houses, and waste to energy plants, added a lot to my knowledge, and helped me develop lifelong learning skills in these technologies.

Finally, I would like to thank all Pro-Green staff and recommend this professional diploma to all professionals seeking to develop their skills and knowledge in green technologies."
