College-level education and training in fundamental principles of clean energy technologies occur in many classes throughout the undergraduate program. Students seeking concentrations in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Materials Engineering will explore various aspects of energy within many core courses.
In addition to gaining fundamental exposure throughout their academic career, in their senior year students will be involved in an industry sponsored Major Design Project. This will be a real-world problem provided by industry, whereby students must utilize all of their engineering knowledge and experience to analyze the problem, iterate on design options and ultimately create a design to meet the stated objective. Each year, projects unique to advanced energy systems are explored within this venue.
An option exists for undergraduate students to work on various research projects associated with clean energy. This work experience augments and enhances knowledge gained in the classrooms. Please click Undergraduate Openings or the C2E2 Director.
