Overview

The geopolitical conflicts over energy resources during the last decades have transformed the current energy landscapes at regional, national and global scales. These shifts in energy landscapes have made the management of energy resources more complex, the development of energy policy more important and controversial, and the innovation of energy technology front-page news. 

Whether it is finding new traditional sources of energy (e.g., oil, coal and natural gas) or developing alternative courses of energy (e.g., wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal) we need to understand that the world is so embedded in conventional sources of energy that policies and decisions regarding alternative sources of energy depend greatly on what happens in the fossil fuel market.

The bachelor of science in Integrated Energy Management program at Central Washington University take these factors into consideration and provides students with an interdisciplinary educational experience that includes the integration of both traditional fossil fuel-based and greener alternative energy.
