Renewable Energy Engineering (RNEE) is a 4-year program that consists of 150 credits and aims at educating engineers to acquire the necessary competencies to design, build and operate the green energy infrastructure.
In addition to basic science and math, the program begins by building solid grounding in fundamentals comprising elements from material, mechanical, thermal, and electrical engineering.
This is followed by 4 semesters of advanced engineering courses that cover Solar and Wind Energy, Photovoltaic Cells, Hydropower Generation, and Geothermal Energy.
The curriculum provides students with strong theory and practical hands-on enabling them to devise effective solutions for the generation, distribution, and utilization of green energy for grid-connected and off-grid applications.
The major culminates in a two-semester capstone where students, working in small groups, demonstrate their mastery of the required engineering competencies and the design process.
To prepare experts in the various aspects of energy and alternative energy sciences and technologies, in particular energy conservation strategies and engineering practices for clean energy production.
Graduates from the Renewable Energy Engineering (RNEE) program are expected to:
Renewable Energy Engineers acquire a broad spectrum of skills needed for every profession in the energy industry that is booming worldwide.
A graduate from RNEE program will be qualified to work in Clean Power Generation and Distribution, Solar Energy Systems, Wind Energy Systems, Hydropower Plants and Geothermal Energy Systems, Sustainability, Energy Efficiency in Buildings, Energy System Modelling, and Energy Audit.
Other career options include prominent chances to work in research and development spending huge budgets on green energy studies.
