Power Systems and Sustainable Energy Program


Mission and Goals

Our mission in the energy field is to provide a strong curriculum in engineering that will enable our graduates to be competent in design, management, and maintenance of energy systems, as well as respecting our natural resources. To accomplish this important mission, we have formulated the following program goals:

• To produce graduates who understand the new trends in renewable energy generation and distribution and can innovate in technology while promoting environmental sustainability, thereby meeting two of the greatest challenges in modern times;

• To educate professionals whose work will be guided by an understanding of, and sensitivity to, the social, political, ethical, and legal relationships between their work and those that it affects;

• To promote and foster teaching and research collaborations between Engineering, Business (management, economics and finance) and Law.
