This program is aimed at providing understanding of energy engineering and the increasing role of energy engineers in addressing growing energy needs. The new skills and advanced understanding developed in class will prepare students for employment in rapidly growing energy industries. Students completing the Certificate will develop an understanding of the current status of energy issues and systems, and their management; learn about varying energy resources and technologies, such as petroleum, coal, natural gas, nuclear, solar, biomass, hydro-electric, and wind; be exposed to technical details on existing commercial processes and associated economics of various energy products; gain a better understanding of public policies to provide greater momentum to the energy industry; learn about the environmental impacts of the various energy systems; get credits for future studies in energy engineering in the Hampton Roads region; and acquire the skills and knowledge to be a part of the expert workforce for the energy industry.
Enables participants to learn state-of-the-art techniques necessary for analyzing cyber security risks, preventing, detecting and recovering from cyber attacks through classroom instructions and hands-on lab work.
Accommodates students from engineering, math and sciences as well as practicing engineers and managers.
Program is designed both as a complement for students working on graduate degrees and for those personnel working on information and cyber systems used in industry, small businesses, healthcare, government, military and homeland security.
It is anticipated that students will complete the program in 2 semesters (full-time enrollment) or 2 years (part-time enrollment or working to complement an existing graduate program).
Overview of social, economical, technical environmental aspects of regional, national and international efforts to achieve sustainable development. Discussion of the integration of industrial activity and ecological concerns utilizing principles of zero emissions, pollution prevention and design for the environment. Prerequisites: permission of instructor.
Rigorous development of the macroscopic theory of thermodynamics; structural basis for equations of state and general properties of matter; phase and chemical equilibria. Prerequisites: MAE 601 or MATH 691.
This course is designed to provide the fundamental physics and characteristics of photovoltaic materials and devices. A focus is placed on i) optical interaction, absorption, and design for photovoltaic materials and systems, ii) subsequent energy conversion processes in inorganic/organic semiconductor such as generation, recombination, and charge transport, and iii) photovoltaic testing and measurement techniques to characterize solar cells including contact and series resistance, open circuit voltage, short circuit current density, fill factor, and energy conversion efficiency of photovoltaic devices. (Offered fall) Prerequisites: ECE 332.
Students entering the Certificate program in Advanced Engineering - Energy Systems should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Graduate Admission)
Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent) in an engineering field or undergraduate degree in another relevant STEM field
Prerequisites for applicants from non-engineering fields include college-level mathematics, calculus-based physics, and chemistry or biology
Estimated rates for the 2021-22 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
