Ohio University’s Energy Engineering major focuses on producing graduates who possess:

  • The necessary skills to be a valued individual and team contributor in a professional environment.
  • The characteristics for diverse career options in the multidisciplinary energy field.
  • The necessary analytical and technical skills to identify complex problems as well as devise and implement their solutions.
  • An understanding of the impact of underlying systems and environmental/societal policies on the global energy infrastructure.

Ohio University’s Energy Engineering curriculum is designed to provide graduates with a solid foundation in higher mathematics and basic sciences followed by extensive training in multidisciplinary energy curricula including energy/material balances, transport phenomena, energy conversions, economics, sustainability, and policy. Additionally, the program integrates engineering experiences throughout the required coursework. These experiences require the application of engineering knowledge to develop and communicate solutions to energy-based problems. In addition, student experiences are enhanced with yearly colloquia which provide students the opportunity to learn from and interact with practicing engineers and researchers from the energy industry. The culminating experience is a year-long senior

capstone design project in which student teams apply their skills to develop a solution to a real-world energy problem including costs, safety, and societal impact.
