Professional Science Masters in Advanced Energy and Fuels Management (PSM Energy)

The PSM Energy is an 18-month program that includes courses in science, business, and the specialization chosen by the student. It includes an internship with an energy company to complete the program. Read more and apply on the PSM Energy website.

Note: Students accepted into this program may be eligible for the Energy Boost Graduate Scholarship.

Mechanical Engineering With Specialization in Energy Engineering

Introduction

The BS in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org). Students pursue coursework in Mechanical Engineering while also focusing their studies in energy engineering. Students are trained in Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and elective areas as per their choosing from Transportation Power Cycles to Energy Management.

Requirements

Energy Specialization

The electives must be chosen from the following and any new courses added by the potential NTT hires and approved by the department as an energy focused elective.

  • ME 405  Transportation Power Cycles
  • ME 406  Thermal Systems Design
  • ME 408  Energy Conversion Systems
  • ME 410  Applied Chemical Thermodynamics and Rate Processes
  • ME 435  Design of Mass Transfer Processes
  • ME 440  Design of HVAC and Building Energy Systems
  • ME 446  Energy Management
  • ME 493  Materials in Energy Applications

Note: Students accepted into this program may be eligible for the Energy Minor/Spec Scholarship or the Coal Country Scholarship.

Minor in Energy Engineering for Mechanical Engineering Students

Introduction

The BS in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org). Students pursue coursework in Mechanical Engineering while also focusing their studies in Energy Engineering. A minor in Energy Engineering will show on the graduate's diploma. Students are trained in Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, and elective areas as per their choosing from Internal Combustion Engines to Materials in Energy Applications.

Requirements

Energy Minor Non-MEEP

The electives must be chosen from the following and any new courses added by the potential NTT hires and approved by the department as an energy focused elective.

  • ME 405  Internal Combustion Engines
  • ME 406  Thermal Systems Design
  • ME 408  Energy Conversion Systems
  • ME 410  Applied Chemical Thermodynamics and Rate Processes
  • ME 435  Design of Mass Transfer Processes
  • ME 440  Design of HVAC and Building Energy Systems
  • ME 446  Energy Management
  • ME 493  Materials in Energy Applications

Note: Students accepted into this program may be eligible for the Energy Minor/Spec Scholarship or the Coal Country Scholarship.

Minor in Energy Engineering for Non-Mechanical Engineering Students

Introduction

Students pursue coursework in their major area of study while also focusing their studies in Energy Engineering. A minor in Energy Engineering will show on the graduate's diploma. Students are trained in Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, and elective areas as per their choosing from Internal Combustion Engines to Materials in Energy Applications.

Requirements

Energy Minor Non-MEEP

The electives must be chosen from the following and any new courses added by the potential NTT hires and approved by the department as an energy focused elective.

  • ME 405  Internal Combustion Engines
  • ME 406  Thermal Systems Design
  • ME 408  Energy Conversion Systems
  • ME 410  Applied Chemical Thermodynamics and Rate Processes
  • ME 435  Design of Mass Transfer Processes
  • ME 440  Design of HVAC and Building Energy Systems
  • ME 446  Energy Management
  • ME 493  Materials in Energy Applications

There should also be a possibility of approving one course from the home department which is energy related.

Students need to be aware the Fluid Mechanics is prerequisite for ME 302 and must be taken. The prerequisite of Dynamics may be waived for these students.

The ME 300 may be waived if the students demonstrate that they have taken an introductory course in university level Thermodynamics.

Note: Students accepted into this program may be eligible for the Energy Minor/Spec Scholarship or the Coal Country Scholarship.
