The Energy Systems Engineering major provides students with the knowledge necessary to understand and make appropriate decisions about the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of energy systems. It emphasizes fundamental skills in engineering analysis, business, and project management. These skills are taught in the context of energy conversion systems such as power plants and solar collectors, energy storage such as batteries and hydrogen, energy distribution systems, and the efficient use of energy in building, manufacturing, and processing systems. A part of this program includes the study of secondary effects of energy use such as local environmental impacts, national economic impacts, and global climate change. Throughout the curriculum, an important emphasis and distinctive feature is the treatment of these energy technologies as complex systems that require management with an eye to both business concerns and environmental issues, as well as the traditional technical challenges of energy engineering.
