The Energy Systems Minor is a 15-hour multidisciplinary in-depth study of energy systems. Students select an area relevant to energy that is within the scope of the their chosen program. A terminal “capstone” or project course provides an opportunity for students from multiple disciplines to work together in multidisciplinary teams on a significant project in the energy area. Appropriate projects are either solicited from industry or faculty experts.
Depth course options available to students may vary depending on the program. Appropriate courses are selected by program faculty to meet the needs of their students.
The minor also includes requirements for courses which cut across disciplines. These courses are intended to add breadth of knowledge in areas outside the student’s major but important to energy systems.
