Narrow your focus to a specific area of study as you find new ways to reduce a product’s environmental effects at every stage of its lifecycle, from conception, developme
Sustainable engineering refers to the integration of social, environmental, and economic considerations into the design of product, process, and energy systems. Additionally, sustainable engineering encourages the consideration of the complete product and process lifecycle during the design effort. The intent is to minimize environmental impacts across the entire lifecycle of a product or process while simultaneously maximizing the benefits to social and economic stakeholders. This environmental engineering degree builds on RIT’s work in sustainability research and education and offers students the flexibility to develop tracks in areas such as renewable energy systems, systems modeling and analysis, product design, and engineering policy and management....
University of San Francisco - College of Arts & Sciences
Electric energy systems are rapidly transforming, making jobs in the energy sector among the fastest growing in the U.S. Our program equips students for energy management
Students gain an understanding of the grid, historically and today; electricity markets; electricity production, efficiency, and conservation; governance, risk, and compliance (GRC); environmental impacts and constraints from energy; and the policy environment. They develop skills in strategic management, communication, change management, stakeholder engagement, and critical and systems thinking.
Our interdisciplinary program features small class sizes and opportunities for research, internships, and professional engagement.
Program Learning Outcomes
Students will be able to:
utilize principles and processes of whole systems to understand how the energy system impacts and is related to the ecological system and the social system.
demonstrate an understanding of the energy policy and market environments and their impact on energy consumption and production.
demonstrate an understanding of the human dimension of energy systems including managing for change, stakeholder engagement, and customer engagement.
communicate skillfully through written reports and oral presentations in styles relevant to the energy field.
utilize critical analysis to understand why the current electricity generation and distribution system evolved and how to move it towards the 21st-century grid.
Classes are taught by full-time faculty, as well as by part-time faculty who have experiential knowledge in the energy sector.
We host guest speakers representing many aspects of the industry-government, utilities, NGOs, private firms.
Evening classes are held at USF’s downtown San Francisco campus at 101 Howard Street. Saturday classes are held at the main campus.

The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering offers a program of graduate study leading to a Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) degree with a major in Renewable and Clean Energy. The Renewable and Clean Energy program includes courses on many types of alternative energy systems, in addition to courses on fundamental concepts related to energy. Included in this program are courses on fuel cells, solar energy, wind power, hydrogen fuel, energy conversion, energy materials, energy efficiency, thermodynamics, etc. The intent of this program is to train the next generation of renewable and clean energy engineers and to develop research in the area of renewable and clean energies....
Climate change is the central environmental challenge of our time. To address this challenge we must use energy more efficiently and maximize our use of renewable energy.
Climate change is the central environmental challenge of our time. To address this challenge we must use energy more efficiently and maximize our use of renewable energy. Making this transformation requires a deep knowledge of the science of sustainable energy as well as a firm grounding in the business and communication skills needed to translate technical knowledge into real world solutions. Graduates of the Professional Science Masters (PSM) in Sustainable Energy Systems will be empowered to help make this transformation and help grow the green economy of New York.
