The EaSE student preparing to face future challenges in this area will obtain a thorough background in an engineering discipline, combined with an interdisciplinary understanding of the energy and sustainability challenges and a deeper understanding of a chosen subtopic. The purposeful mixture of core, breadth, and depth will allow the graduate to tackle problems that are faced in research, planning, development, and implementation of advanced technologies, and allow them to become intermediaries between technology and society.
The Graduate Certificate Option in Energy and Sustainability Engineering (EaSE) is available to who are enrolled in a departmental master’s or Ph.D. program at Illinois. The EaSE program does not offer admission to the university. Therefore, interested students should first obtain admission into a department and then sign up for EaSE once they arrive on campus.
Participation in EaSE will not delay a student’s progress toward the degree or add to the student’s total course load. The option is based on courses that are currently offered by The Grainger College of Engineering and other departments at Illinois. Upon successful completion of both the Graduate Certificate Option requirements and the requirements of the student’s master’s or Ph.D. program, he or she will receive an EaSE certificate. The certificate is not a transcriptable credential and will not appear on the student’s transcript.
