Energy Resource Utilization Certificate

The Energy Resource Utilization Certificate is designed for those students interested in both the development of new energy resources and the study of existing ones. Students in the Swanson School of Engineering may earn a certificate in energy resource utilization by completing two 6-credit courses. The first course, Energy Today, offered by the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department at the University of Pittsburgh, examines current technologies that supply energy from coal, petroleum, gas, and uranium. The second course, Energy Beyond 2000, offered by the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, examines energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and those techniques that will be used in the future to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Both courses are offered in the summer term: Energy Today from mid-May to mid-June, and Energy Beyond 2000 from late June to early August.
