Energy Engineering (B.S.)

Penn State Greater Allegheny is now offering the 3rd year of program in Energy Engineering.  Students that are accepted into this 3 + 1 program will be able to continue their studies at the Greater Allegheny campus.  Students are also eligible to transfer from another Penn State campus to complete the 3rd year of programming.  All participating students will complete the 4th year of programming at the University Park campus.  

Courses offered in the 3rd year of Energy Engineering (ENENG) offer an in-depth focus on energy principles, alternative energy, as well as traditional upper-level engineering courses.  Students completing the 3rd year of courses at PSUGA will be aligned with the program at University Park campus so that there will be a seamless transition for the final year of study.

The Energy Engineering program incorporates elements of fuel science, with the addition of courses focused on renewable energy and electrochemical engineering as well as professional electives in business, finance, and management.

The program prepares students to be successful leaders in advancing the technology and management of energy; innovators and entrepreneurs in the energy sector; and educators, practicing engineers, and national leaders in the energy and associated environmental health and safety, policy and economic fields.

The Energy Engineering B.S. program in the John and Willie Leone Family Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering (EME) at Penn State is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
