About this Program
The energy engineering minor provides students with basic knowledge and skills needed to understand, address, and make effective decisions about the generation, production, utilization, and application of energy. It provides high quality education in energy-related topics that will prepare students for employment opportunities in the private and public sectors, graduate studies, and research.
This interdisciplinary minor, administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is designed for students with majors in engineering. However, students with majors in other disciplines may also apply, should they meet the course prerequisites. The coursework provides broad-based science and engineering knowledge suited to energy generation, production, utilization, and application. The minor enhances degrees in engineering.
