Best Engineering Graduate
All students enrolled in the Certificate in Energy Engineering core or elective courses must earn a grade of "B" or better in all courses in this program. Any student not complying with minimum grade requirements will prompt a review of that student's academic standing and may result in their dismissal from the program.
Professionals who hold a BS degree in Engineering or the Natural Sciences (primarily chemistry or physics) are eligible to enroll in the Graduate Certificate in Energy Engineering program.
Please note that this is a graduate certificate (not a degree). The courses offered in this program, however, are all College of Engineering technical electives and can typically be used as technical electives in the pursuit of an undergraduate BS in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, and most of the 5000 level courses may be used towards a MS in Mechanical Engineering degree.
All potential students must apply to LTU for admission to the Certificate in Energy Engineering program and will be admitted only after review and approval from the Energy Engineering Program Director.
Students enrolled in the Certificate in Energy Engineering program must formally petition to the LTU Office of the Registrar to receive their certificate upon completing the program. Contact the LTU Office of the Registrar for details regarding petitioning.
To educate individuals in Energy Engineering including alternative (renewable) energy sources, traditional (fossil fuel) energy sources, nuclear energy, energy management and conservation.
To help meet global needs with energy educated engineers who can address the issues related to energy and the supply and demand balance of global fossil fuel resources and to transition the economy to more environmentally friendly energy systems.
Dr. Fletcher has research interests in the following areas; alternative energy and renewable energy, energy conservation, and the optimization of traditional energy systems. He has also led students in the building and operation of a state-of-the-art alternative energy lab.
