Sustainability Science Graduate Certificate


The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers an interdisciplinary graduate certificate in sustainability science designed to prepare students to be conversant in all of the fields relevant to sustainable energy production. The program draws upon the strengths of faculty members in five departments: Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering; Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering; and Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology and Chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences. The required courses focus upon the fundamental scientific concepts and the social and political considerations involved in developing sustainable energy.
