The Energy Systems degree prepares you for a career in developing, designing, operating, and analyzing clean energy systems that help combat climate change. Our program will be the first Energy Systems Engineering degree in the California State University system and our graduates will be prepared to be leaders in this new field.
As an Energy Systems Engineering student, you’ll build on a solid foundation of engineering fundamentals so you can engage with project-based and interdisciplinary courses that cover key topics including building energy efficiency, renewable energy, electric power systems, and community energy planning. The program will be focused on energy-related infrastructure, devices, planning, and operations. It will emphasize systems integration, and use an interdisciplinary approach to considering how energy systems are situated in social, ecological, and economic contexts. The program will incorporate elements from civil, environmental, mechanical, and electrical engineering disciplines.
