Table of contents


Energy systems engineering involves overseeing complex energy conversion and distribution systems, improving energy storage systems, and managing the efficient use of energy in building, manufacturing, and processing systems.

Energy systems engineers work on a wide variety of projects, such as analyzing and increasing industrial energy efficiency, managing wind turbine farms, overseeing production of innovative fuel-cell technology, and developing renewable energy resources and assessing their environmental impact.

Our multidisciplinary program, based at the OSU-Cascades campus, is a hybrid curriculum combining engineering fundamentals, basic science and mathematics, energy-focused technical classes, and business management courses.

Graduates are ready to join the ranks of a rising profession and apply their skills to help the public and private sectors tackle the global challenge of efficient energy consumption, distribution, conversion, and storage.
