Energy Science and Technology - BS

Energy is on the minds of many people, all kinds of energy.

WHY STUDY ENERGY SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY?

How do we harness the various forms of natural energy? How do we extract other forms of energy while protecting the environment? How do we maximize the stores of energy we already have?

Our program can help you answer those questions. You’ll learn multi-disciplinary engineering skills through physics, calculus, and engineering analysis courses.
 

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

During your first two years, you'll be introduced to a variety of energy-related industries. Then you can focus on a specific area: energy use in buildings, alternative energy production, petroleum technology, nuclear energy, or energy and the environment. In your upper-level courses and capstone project, you’ll work on sensors and controls.
