South Seattle College will host a kick-off party on May 12 to celebrate their newest Bachelor's Degree offering in Sustainable Building Science Technology. The festivities will be held from 4-6 P.M. at South's Georgetown Campus, 6737 Corson Ave., in the Gene J. Colin Education Building.

Seattle Colleges Trustee and Seattle City Light C.E.O and General Manager Jorge Carrasco will serve as emcee for the event. Additionally, Washington State Senator Bob Hasegawa is expected to attend.

South developed the Sustainable Building Science Technology Bachelor's Degree program in response to industry demand for the management of environmentally-friendly buildings. The program will be offered starting in the Fall Quarter of 2014. It prepares students who have completed an apprenticeship program, a two-year technical degree or approved associate degree and have 2-5 years of related work experience with commercial and residential high performance buildings.

This 90-credit degree program offers industry professionals a pathway to becoming a skilled Building Science Professional. The program emphasizes upper-division coursework that focuses on the complexities of building science, energy codes, building codes and facility management.
