Energy Resource Management and Development Bachelor of Science
Half of the leadership in the energy industries are expected to retire in the next five to ten years! Many energy professionals have training in a specific discipline, such as engineering, geology or economics. However, as global energy issues increase in complexity there is an increasing demand for professionals with a multidisciplinary background.
These professionals are able to understand and draw on the expertise of engineers and other energy scientists but are also able to understand the business, legal, and public policy implications of a given project. They act as the hub of the wheel, creating comprehensive solutions.
The Energy Resource Management and Development Program is designed to fill this need. Through a combination of rigorous academic training, hands-on scenarios, and real-world internships, students are prepared for the essential roles in the future energy arena.
