Energy - Certificate
The Certificate in Energy aims to expose students and professionals to (a) important energy challenges and opportunities, and (b) advances in theory, methods, technologies, and applications delivered by energy leaders from academia, industry, and government, through a module-based structure.
Emphasis is placed on creating the new generation of energy educated students and professionals who are broadly educated on all components of energy through quantitative analytical methods and multi-scale systems based approaches.
The Certificate in Energy is designed to introduce students and professionals to the multiple interdisciplinary facets of energy ranging from an overview of energy technologies (fossil-based, renewable, and non-fossil based) to multi-scale energy systems engineering methods, to energy economics, law, security, policy, and societal impact. This program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology.
The coursework for the Certificate in Energy is drawn from the Interdisciplinary Curricular Program in Energy, which is shared with the Master of Science in Energy. More information can be found on the program website at http://energy.tamu.edu/education.
