Undergraduate Programs

Course 10-ENG: Bachelor of Science in Engineering with Concentration

 

Energy Concentration

The Energy Concentration provides an opportunity for students to investigate a range of topics that address engineering solutions to energy, including alternative energy solutions and energy technology and policy. Students within this track might choose to examine specific approaches toward addressing energy challenges: for example, the design of new materials for energy applications, generation of electrochemical energy or solar devices, nuclear energy, and biosynthesis of new fuels. This concentration also provides for a more general exposure to some of the key issues and advances in energy technologies, and timely issues that influence the ways in which we address global energy resources. The classes listed below are suggested subjects, but students may propose any set of courses that fit the energy concentration pending approval from their 10-ENG advisor.

Suggested Undergraduate Subjects

Students can choose 4 of the following subjects, or propose other subjects that are consistent with this concentration in consultation with his or her advisor.
