Department Overview
Vision
The Sustainable and Renewable Engineering program vision is to be recognized nationally and regionally as one of the preeminent Sustainable and Renewable Engineering programs.

Mission
The essential mission of the program is to provide its graduate engineers with top-rated, professional education in the field of sustainable and renewable energy engineering.  The program is intended to be a leader in providing theoretical knowledge and practices required for the design, development, implementation, and improvement of integrated sustainable energy systems that include people, materials, information and equipment required to generate, store and distribute energy from sustainable and renewable sources.

Objectives
The program is specifically designed to achieve the following four educational objectives:
  1. Have the knowledge and skills, including problem analysis, solving, and design, necessary for a successful career in Sustainable and Renewable Energy Engineering.
  2. Acquire skills of critical thinking, teamwork, leadership and communications, and use them to solve complex sustainable and renewable energy engineering problems.
  3. Continue to develop knowledge using modern design tools and new technologies in engineering and learn through appropriate lifelong education processes.
  4. Be admitted to and succeed in graduate study in internationally recognized universities.
