The “C” representing the classroom involves students as an academic population who not only benefit from course offerings and instruction in energy auditing and energy resource management, but also facilitate improvements on campus through assessment, auditing, and monitoring activities.  Educational opportunities offered to the students at the university under the Environmental Science Program, administered by the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Studies, offer insight into real life workplace situations.  Integration of energy management activities into academic experiences for the students is an extension of the improvements to the facilities on campus and the management of accumulated deferred maintenance.

Cooperative and internship opportunities and job placement for the classroom sector of the 3-C's is another benefit.
