Issues related to limited energy resources, energy efficiency and conservation, and renewable energy, as well as the effects of ever-increasing energy production and consumption are prompting a significant surge in the need for professionals with an advanced education in energy systems.
A newly developed concentration area for the SFSU Master of Science in Engineering degree addresses this rising demand for energy professionals. The Energy Systems concentration area includes coursework in:
- Energy Resources and Sustainability
- Renewable Energy Systems
- Energy-Efficient Buildings
- Energy Auditing, Measurement and Verification
Research areas for program faculty include industrial energy efficiency, advanced materials for solar cells, internal combustion engines, energy and emissions life-cycle analyses, and energy storage. More information about research labs and centers in the School of Engineering can be found here.
