Green Engineering Sequence Courses

As the growth of the world’s populations and economies puts an ever increasing strain on the social and physical environment, today’s engineers are faced with developing solutions that use renewable energy sources, reduce waste energy, minimize the impact on the environment, reduce poverty in the world, and provide prosperity for all.

In the junior year, a student may choose electives in the general mechanical engineering course of study, or specialize with electives in Green Engineering.

Green elective courses are designed to satisfy the need for mechanical engineers with a knowledge of (1) renewable energy sources such as wind, water, solar, and geothermal energy, (2) power generation, distribution, and management, (3) energy management, and (4) principles of green engineering.

Green Courses

In the Junior and Senior years, there are green engineering courses that can be selected to satisfy mechanical engineering program elective requirements, as well as, a required mechanical engineering project based course in which a green engineering component can be included.
