Energy, Science and Technology

In the Energy, Science and Technology Concentration students gain an understanding of the scientific and technical constraints and opportunities that are pertinent to sustainable energy development. Courses bridge scientific and technological knowledge with an understanding of energy and environmental policies that influence energy technology design and choice. Students are equipped with an understanding of government policy and economic instruments in order to analyze and assess sustainable energy options, and technological development.

The following plan is only an example. Not every student will take courses in the same order. Students must consult with their faculty advisor each semester to decide on their actual plan of study. There are many options for completing each concentration.
