Undergraduate program in Energy Engineering has been established since the spring semester of 2010 (30 students are admitted per year). Energy engineering is an exciting field of great societal relevance and unique undergraduate and graduate programs are offered by the Department of Energy Engineering. In particular, undergraduate program is a first of its kind in the country, with the curriculum addressing the urgent need for the development of next generation green energy sources and devices as well as conventional fossil fuels at the undergraduate level, with international collaboration.
The curriculum for undergraduates is aiming at a broad understanding of the interlinked realms of basic science, technology, and social sciences as they relate to energy and associated environmental challenges. This flexibility in the curriculum makes it an attractive dual or concurrent major and minor option for students in other energy-related programs as it prepare students to become valuable contributors in addressing society’s energy needs and demands. Additionally, the department prepares students to become successful global leaders in advancing the technology and management of energy; innovators and entrepreneurs in the energy sector; and educators, practicing engineers, and national leaders in the energy and associated environmental health and safety, policy and economic fields by participating in international collaborative projects.
The Department of Energy Engineering will train students to be lifelong learners, problem solvers, and energy industry leaders. The curriculum is sufficiently flexible, broad, and diverse to enable students to tailor their educational experience to particular interests, background, and expected role in the society. The flexibility allows students in energy related programs such as chemical, electrical, environmental, physical, and chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, and business and finance to have dual or concurrent degrees, minors, or options. Fundamentally, our curriculum is based on various multidiscipline courses from the Department of Chemical Engineering, the Department of Material Science and Engineering, the Department of Chemistry, and the Department of Physics at 西甲买球app, so it provides a multidisciplinary experience in many different aspects of fundamental energy science and engineering.
Undergraduate Internship Opportunities– students enrolled in energy engineering will have the opportunity to participate in the Internship Program. Currently many industries closely associated with energy and environment have initiated the internship program to recruit highly qualified students from the nation’s top science and engineering universities for internships in energy programs. This program provides employment for students once they graduate and a pipeline of employees for every industry in the energy sector.
