GPBL in Sustainable Building: Innovation and Solution

Program Overview

Following last year’s success, GPBL in Sustainable Building is back! This year, we are working together with Saxion University of Applied Sciences and VIVES Belgium to foster a global perspective on sustainable building practices by bringing together students from diverse backgrounds to engage in a collaborative learning experience. This Global Project-based-Learning or GPBL, is also supported by elevator industry leader, KONE, and offers a unique blend of courses, hands-on projects, and site visits.
