The Energy Transition presents problems which require thinking accross boundaries.

Following an interdisciplinary approach, students conduct analyses of the engineering considerations, economic implications, and policy instruments that affect public and private choices around sustainable energy. By becoming conversant in multiple domains that are critical to this socio-technical transition, graduates will be able to interpret and respond to emerging technologies or new policies, without regarding some as “black boxes”. They will also be able to communicate effectively across disciplinary boundaries. This program strengthens background in both the technical and the policy dimensions of energy systems and decision-making.
