Energy and Environment Certificate

The Energy/Environment Certificate is created for students wishing to specialize in the generation and environmental effects of energy.  Required courses in Renewable Energy and advanced thermodynamics provide a strong background in energy conversion and storage.  Remaining courses allow students to focus on areas including grid-level control and the impact of energy conversion on global and local environments.
