Designed for professionals in the energy industry, including administrators, engineers, and others impacted by new policies and practices relating to renewable energy, the online graduate certificate in renewable energy covers energy technologies, energy markets and business, and energy policy.
The certificate is multidisciplinary, featuring courses taught by instructors from several engineering disciplines as well as the Colleges of Science and Liberal Arts. Instructors are experts in their respective fields at Nevada and other research institutions.
The four course (12-credit) certificate program allows you flexibility in your specific coursework while providing a breadth of understanding in different aspects of renewable energy. Selecting four courses from the nine-course certificate curriculum gives you the opportunity to take courses suited to your interest areas.
The courses are designed and taught by top faculty from the University of Nevada, Reno and other research institutions. Courses are designed to facilitate participation in online discussions, case-study analysis, and problem-based learning. The online format accommodates the schedule of working professionals and also allows you to benefit from diverse geographic perspectives of your classmates.
Courses may qualify as professional development hours for Professional Engineers (PE) licensed by the State of Nevada and as professional development education for teachers.
The program is designed for students who hold a bachelor's degree in engineering, management or a related field. If you are not currently enrolled in a graduate degree program, you must complete a graduate special application in addition to your application to the Renewable Energy Certificate Program.
The program is funded in part by Nevada Renewable Energy Consortium / DOE (DE-EE0000272), NV Energy, and Extended Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno.
