Energy Engineering

We have a finite supply of energy resources. Our response: find ways to use these resources more efficiently and develop new sources for energy.

Energy engineers discover valuable renewable energy sources that free us from dependency on quickly-depleting materials. They reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are hazardous to humans and the environment. And they eliminate waste by making our world more energy-efficient.

This broad field of engineering deals with energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies. Energy engineers creatively apply their knowledge of science (physics and chemistry), engineering (electrical and mechanical) and economics to confront the global challenges of energy supply and demand.
