Energy Sustainability Graduate Certificate

Department: Dean’s Office

Concerns about future economic growth, standards of living, and environmental quality have made sustainable energy a top priority worldwide. The goal of this certificate is to provide students with a solid understanding of the key principles of sustainability, its economics, and how it is practiced by the energy industry in the form of sustainable transportation fuels and electricity from natural resources with a small carbon footprint.  The Certificate will prepare students for careers in sustainability and sustainable energy.
The Certificate will provide a general foundation in sustainability and thorough understanding of all forms of energy that can support a sustainable economy. It is designed to appeal to an audience with a wide range of backgrounds and career interests by addressing energy from all angles (technology, business, economic, policy, social) unlike similar-sounding programs at other institutions, which are designed narrowly for engineering and hard science students.
