PhD Programs in Energy Studies Energy Sustainable Energy

Programs focused on sustainable energy provide students with knowledge surrounding alternative, more environmentally friendly forms of energy. Some common topics may include renewable energy transportation systems, thermodynamics, wind energy, nuclear engineering, solar thermal energy applications and energy systems management.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
