The MEng Certificate in Energy Studies is no longer offered beyond August 2016. For those interested in specializing in Energy, please see the Emphasis in Sustainable Energy Certificate: Sustainable Energy
Issues of energy production and consumption, and the associated environmental impacts, are near the top of many lists of global challenges for the 21st century. Engineers have both the responsibility and the expertise to contribute to developing strategies and solutions to address societal needs and concerns. For this reason, the Department of MIE created this Certificate in Energy Studies, to provide graduate engineers a framework on which to further develop expertise both in traditional energy sources, as well as alternative and low-carbon energy systems.
To earn an MEng Certificate in Energy Studies, a student must take three required courses and then three more from a list of electives, or one more elective course and pursue an MEng project on a topic related to energy.
For each required course already taken as an undergraduate student, an MEng student must replace the completed course with an additional elective course.
A student must take three of the following:
|MIE515||Alternative Energy Systems|
|MIE516||Combustion and Fuels|
|MIE1120||Current Energy Infrastructure and Resources|
A student must take three elective courses from the following list, or one elective course and pursue an MEng project on a topic related to energy. If a student wishes to receive credit for an energy-related course not on this list, permission to take the course towards the requirements of this certificate program must be requested of the MIE Graduate Coordinator prior to enrolling in the course.
