Our Commitment to "Green"
Portland State University is committed to responsible development in building design and construction. Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is a voluntary building rating system for commercial buildings developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to provide a national consensus in what constitutes a "green" building and to provide market incentives to build green. PSU received a LEED Gold rating for the Northwest Center for Engineering, Science and Technology, home to PSU's Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science. The engineering building is a model for energy and resource efficient design.
"Engineering and Computer Science have entered a new age at Portland State University"
Portland is uniquely situated in its importance to electronics, environmental friendly building, transportation planning, and the metals industry, and all rely on the tools and people at the Maseeh College to stay competitive. Employers seek out Portland State University engineering graduates both for their research ability and their practical work experience. Most Maseeh College students either participate in internships or work as part-time or full-time employees in their field before they graduate. It is one reason why Intel Oregon looks to the Maseeh College as a source of engineering talent.
While much of our research focuses on the needs and attributes of our region, our perspective and expertise make us a valuable player in collaborative projects with institutions throughout the world. The scope and prominence of our work is truly global.
