During his tenure at UW, Dr. Reddy took over a fading Water Resources interdisciplinary M.S. degree program in 2000 and reinvigorated that program. Over 52 students have graduated from the program since 2000. Several academic disciplines across the campus participate in this program. These academic programs include:
As an Associate Director of Academics for SER, Dr. Reddy's initial major task was to develop an interdisciplinary degree program in energy resources. He collaborated with faculty, Dept. Chairs, and Deans across the campus (e.g., Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Applied Science, Agriculture, Business, Education, Law, as well as the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) and Outreach School) and developed an interdisciplinary B.S. degree major titled, "Energy Resource Science (ERS)" at University of Wyoming. The University of Wyoming Academic Affairs and Board of Trustees (BOT) approved the ERS degree in January 2009. The goal of the ERS degree is to offer a diverse curriculum that combines engineering, science, business, law, and natural resources content to build a fundamental understanding of interactions and tradeoffs between energy, environment, policy and the economy. A significant portion of ERS curriculum includes different energy portfolios, climate change, carbon capture and storage, anthropogenic CO2 mitigation, air quality, soil quality, and water quality. The ERS degree was offered at UW for the first time starting with the Fall 2009 semester. As of Fall 2010, 25 students enrolled into the ERS degree program.
