M.Eng. in Sustainable Energy Engineering to Launch in Fall 09

M.Eng. in Sustainable Energy Engineering to Launch in Fall 09


Be a part of this new academic program, learning from faculty in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Reliability Engineering, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and Systems Engineering, this unique multi-disciplinary curriculum represents their commitment to preparing engineers for the challenges of this rapidly growing field. Courses are taught by the university's foremost experts in various areas of energy engineering as well as international experts from the public and private sectors.

The curriculum is designed to cover core topics in Renewable Energy Applications, Energy Conversion for Stationary and Mobility Applications, Environmental Risk Analysis, Advanced Fuel Cells and Batteries, and Photovoltaics (Solar Energy). The student will then customize their educational experience according to their individual needs by selecting from three elective sets; Nuclear Engineering, Energy Systems, or Reliability Engineering.

Drawing upon the Clark School's strengths in energy engineering research through University of Maryland Energy Research Center (UMERC), the new program provides an immersive and collaborative learning experience that enables ambitious candidates from around the world to share experiences and know-how, while staying in constant touch with the school's expert faculty.

The high interest in Sustainable Energy Engineering education locally and the lack of an equivalent option available from other top engineering schools nationwide necessitate offering the Master’s program on-line nationally and internationally. The sustainable energy field is an international and dynamic area where well-trained engineers are in high demand. Graduates can expect to find employment in either companies or government agencies. The Master of Engineering program in Sustainable Energy Engineering is also an excellent starting point for a research career.

In its on-campus and on-line forms, a student is awarded the Master of Engineering degree in the Sustainable Energy Engineering academic option after having completed ten three-credit courses.
