"I feel that this program allowed me to focus my degree on something that will make a profound difference in the world.” Ryan Smith, BSME’07, project engineer, NextEnergy
From rising fuel costs to global warming, we face environmental concerns today that require innovative thinking and strong leadership skills. We can no longer afford to rely solely on traditional energy sources, which is why now, more than ever, we look to those trained in alternative fuel and energy systems to help create a brighter, cleaner, and more sustainable future.
Why Energy Engineering
In addition to preparing you for leadership roles in the primary fields of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering, a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Lawrence Technological University can equip you to enter a variety of allied disciplines, including biomedical engineering, computer science, and aerospace engineering.
