The School of Energy Resources facilitates interdisciplinary academic and research programs in engineering and science, economics, and environment and natural resources policy to address critical energy-related issues faced by our society.

Our mission is to leverage and add to the already significant energy-related talent and resources in the University of Wyoming colleges to develop human resources, know-how, and technical solutions to ensure a secure and sustainable energy future for the state, region, and nation.

Energy Resource Management and Development Bachelor of Science 

One of the most important challenges of the 21st century will be to develop and manage energy resources in a sustainable manner.  Projections show energy consumption worldwide will increase nearly 50 percent by 2035. And half of the leadership in the energy industries is expected to retire in the next five to ten years.

The future of energy will be characterized by increasing knowledge, relentless change, and technological innovation. As global energy industry increases in complexity, demand will dramatically grow for professionals with a multidisciplinary, entrepreneurial skill set. Future leaders must understand complex engineering and scientific technology within the context of business, legal, social and public policy in order to create comprehensive and sustainable solutions.

The Energy Resource Management and Development (ERM&D) B.S. program is designed to fill this need through a combination of rigorous courses, real-world internships, and undergraduate research experiences. It is a collaborative degree with the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Business, Engineering and Applied Sciences, and Law as well as the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources. The curriculum balances depth of learning with breadth of understanding to train graduates for sustained competitive success in the energy workforce at the frontiers of knowledge and for self-directed, life-long learning. Students learn to focus on continuous improvement, constant assessment and the importance of a sense of urgency and consideration of profit motive in the energy industry

Our program emphasizes career planning and provides constant one-on-one guidance and assistance to ensure optimal workforce placement. Students are strongly encouraged to complete an industry internship (minimum GPA requirement is typically 3.0). Opportunities are also available for undergraduate research, a study abroad experience or a summer field trip. Multiple events during the year connect students to energy industry professionals.

Required Academic Performance

The student must earn a letter grade of C or better in each course and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.

Concentrations

The Energy Resource Management and Development program offers four concentrations and students must declare at least one concentration.  They are  professional land management, fossil fuels, energy land and water management, and renewable energy.  The suggested course sequences are shown below.
