Education

Cornell’s Energy Systems Institute is an active advocate for maintaining high standards in terms of technical rigor and breadth of coursework across the university and its campuses.

Through the weekly Energy Engineering Seminar, CESI provides a mechanism for students in and outside of Cornell to receive up-to-date knowledge about energy systems science and technology, across the full spectrum of energy options.

Cornell also offers a broad range of energy-related coursework that enrolled students can take for credit. The list of available courses is a living document; through addition of new faculty members and technical staff with expertise that extends the list, CESI works with departments across the Cornell campuses to add new curricula to enrich our offerings in energy.

The specialization in Energy Economics and Engineering (EEE) brings together faculty and students from various personal and academic backgrounds to focus on potential careers in energy-related technology, management, and public policy. Course work explores current and evolving energy systems.
