Introduction

Overview

Providing sustainable energy for a rapidly growing world population is a grand challenge of the 21st century. Power generation and environmental emissions are a technical, social and political issue that affects economies and the environment on local, national and global scales. The Energy Systems program examines diverse technical, socio-political, and ecological dimensions of power generation and consumption including:

  • Energy generation, storage, and conversion technologies;
  • Impacts of energy and environmental policy on the power generation sector;
  • Quantitative, qualitative, and descriptive models of energy flows and storages that illuminate the role of energy in the functionality of the biosphere and modern society;
  • Ecological systems functionality and how this pertains to ecosystem health and ecological services provided to support humankind;and
  • Interconnections with food and water systems.

The Energy Systems Emphasis Area stresses a holistic approach and offers exposure to many disciplines beyond engineering including natural and social sciences, public policy, and business. The curriculum is highly flexible and offers personalized plans of study.
