This is a particularly good time to pursue this career, as there is current growth in the international construction market. More corporations are doing business internationally, and under the World Trade Organization, construction industry professionals are within their rights to practice their profession outside the country of their citizenship. This makes international sustainable construction a possible excellent field of work to pursue. This certificate equips students with the understanding of how the construction industry operates on a global basis that is necessary to succeed in this field. This course of study consists of a concentration of four courses, or 12 semester hours, that are necessary for certificate completion.
