The Energy and Environment program allows students to examine environmental issues related to the built environment, taking full advantage of courses and initiatives throughout the GSD and Harvard University. It is closely associated with the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, providing ways to couple theory with applied research. Examples of research topics include health, natural ventilation, advanced simulation and computation, and Artificial Intelligence.
