We are training tomorrow's energy workforce. The Ph.D., master's and undergraduate students and post-doctoral researchers working in our labs develop the theoretical, technical and practical experiences that will empower them to become innovators and leaders in a wide range of energy industries.
We are dedicated to increasing and diversifying the pipeline of students who are prepared to solve the difficult energy challenges of today and tomorrow. We participate in and support a number of programs that expose young people of all backgrounds to the opportunities available to people who pursue STEM careers.
