PhD Programs in Energy Studies Energy Renewable Energy

The finite availability of fossil fuels and environmental pressures drives students in the field of renewable energy to discover and implement new technologies to harness the power of the wind, sun, and water, as well as geothermal and bioenergy options.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
