Energy Core

EST&P Core CoursesFour required energy core mini-courses provide a foundation for your understanding of all aspects of energy.  Think of these courses as four different perspectives from which you will examine and understand the multifaceted issues of energy.  In the core courses, you will participate in multidisciplinary teams to understand and develop solutions to energy problems, present results and write reports, engage in active discussions, and debate with faculty and your fellow students.

For detailed information on each of the Energy Core mini-courses:

    39-610 Energy Conversion and Supply (6 units - A1)
    39-613 Energy Transport and Storage (6 units - A2)
    39-611 Energy Demand and Utilization (6 units - A3)
    39-612 Energy Policy and Economics (6 units - A4)

As part of a strategic partnership with the Heinz College Public Policy & Management program, selected Heinz students also participate in the energy core courses. Also, selected MBA Tepper students in the Energy Business Track and selected MS students in partner engineering departments may participate in the energy core courses.
