Studying Energy Engineering at Weber State
Energy Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with energy efficiency, power generation, energy services, facility management, environmental compliance, sustainable energy and renewable energy.
The Weber State University Energy Engineering Program will seek accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET upon producing its first graduate.
Energy Engineering Highlights
The Energy Engineering Program consists primarily of courses in the Mechanical Engineering Program, bolstered by courses in Electrical Engineering. Some new courses in energy related topics are also an integral part of the program. In the senior year, students complete a two-semester capstone project that integrates their course work. The program prepares graduates to enter the energy engineering industry or to pursue graduate studies in the discipline.
Beyond the Classroom
One of the more recent engineering fields to emerge, energy engineering combines the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, environmental science and economics. The main responsibility of energy engineers is to find the most efficient, sustainable and cost-effective ways to operate buildings, power plants and manufacturing processes.
