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.

Welcome our new Associate Professor, Ines Azevedo

Professor Azevedo is passionate about solving problems that include environmental, technical, economic, and policy issues, where traditional engineering approaches play an important role but cannot provide a complete answer.
