The goal of the Energy Systems Credential and its seven core badges is to highlight a student’s mastery of interdisciplinary topics related to energy conversion, usage and efficiency within a group of core courses.
To earn each badge, students must:
- Demonstrate mastery of an energy activity in the core courses by obtaining a result for the activity that exceeds the expectations of the instructor.
- Complete a set of energy surveys for the course.
In their final year, students choose from a variety of selective courses with specific badges that will improve their energy competency in a specific field or fields, such as:
- Utilities (electric power, natural gas, renewable energy, etc.)
- HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning)
- Demonstrate competency in energy systems
- Differentiate yourself as a job candidate
- Enhance interdisciplinary thinking
- Demonstrate exceptional performance in your courses
- Access to new energy-related opportunities
