Energy Science and Technology BS

Program Name: Energy Science and Technology

Program Designation: B.S.

Program Contact: Matt Kropf, Program Director

Academic Division: Physical and Computational Sciences

Program Description:

This program is designed to provide an introductory level education of multi-disciplinary engineering skills through the broad requirement of physics, calculus, and engineering analysis courses. In addition to these core math and science competencies, the first two years of the program introduces the students to a variety of energy related industries. With this combination, students are then encouraged to begin specialization through approved upper-level electives. Specifically, students can focus on energy use in buildings, alternative energy production, petroleum technology, nuclear energy, or energy and the environment. This organization helps students to translate to applied skills, making them more marketable in the job market. Finally, a curricular emphasis on sensors and controls will be placed through an upper-level course requirement and capstone project.
