Energy Engineering provides exciting and unique opportunities that deal with production, conversion, storage, and efficiency of energy, and alternative energy technologies from a basic concept to practical technology.
we combine courses from chemistry, electrochemistry, polymer, ceramics, physics, and materials engineering to create a strong knowledge base essential to success in energy-related areas.
Battery Science and Technology
Battery Science and Technology provides students with a sound basic and practical engineering knowledge-base overlaid with established and emerging battery technology learning through in-depth discussions and laboratory experiments.
We focus on the application of scientific principles to design and fabricate novel next generation battery system, which is a key aspect of today’s green technology such as portable electronics, electric vehicles, and ‘smart grid’ power distribution.
Chemical Engineering focuses on the application of Chemical engineering to a variety of specific areas, including energy and the environment, catalysis, reaction engineering, systems and process design, nanotechnology, polymers and colloids and biotechnology. Faculty members are involved in cutting-edge research programs that encompasses all areas of Chemical engineering: Nanoscience, Materials Science, Catalysis, Electronic Materials and Devices, Colloidal Science and Chemical Engineering. The graduate students and post doctoral researchers will have access to state-of-the-art facilities on campus, such as the UCRF and Chemical Sciences Facility.
