Institute for Energy Studies

Huxley College is collaborating with the College of Business and Economics and the College of Sciences and Technology to develop an innovative new program designed to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding green energy economy. Currently, Western offers a minor in energy policy. In the near future, the curriculum will include a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Bachelor of Science degree, and the option to minor in policy and economics or science and technology. Graduate degrees will also be offered.

Like Huxley's other institutes, Institute for Energy Studies will provide research opportunities for affiliated faculty and students in the topics of clean and renewable energy and energy efficiency. Program participants will gain core competencies in energy related science, policy, technology, economics and business and have opportunities to participate in energy research with nationally recognized faculty-mentors.
