Our energy systems engineering degree is one of only six of its kind in the U.S.
That means we bring the excellence of OSU's College of Engineering to our energy systems engineering program — including world-class professors and the quality of education that only OSU delivers.
The bachelor of science in energy systems engineering combines engineering fundamentals with energy-focused technical courses and business management classes. This multidisciplinary curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in the core principles of mechanical, electrical and industrial engineering.
Courses in energy consumption, distribution, storage, conversion, policy, and business management help prepare students for rewarding technical careers in the broad energy field.
You can expect:
Energy systems engineers design devices, processes and systems used to convert, distribute and store energy. It is a broad field with many opportunities. Our alumni are working at many different companies and in a variety of roles including:
The energy systems engineering program is only offered at OSU-Cascades.
The energy systems engineering program is ABET accredited. This accreditation is retroactive to the first energy systems engineering graduate in Fall 2012.
