Energy Resources Engineering

We teach courses and perform research relevant to the production and transformation of energy resources.

Creating a sustainable energy future

We train future leaders in the science and engineering of Earth's energy resources. We combine theory, experiments, and computation to understand and influence the global energy resources landscape. We are committed to leading the way to provide the people, methods, and tools for sustainable management of the Earth's energy resources.

Training future leaders

Congratulations to our 2019 Graduates!
