Stanford University has announced that it will be offering a new professional certificate in renewable energy.
The online program – called Energy Innovation and Emerging Technologies – explores emerging technologies that can transform how energy is obtained, distributed and stored.
Program participants – including engineers, product developers, product marketing managers, investors and policymakers – will gain a greater understanding of the entire energy landscape and the fundamentals of how emerging technologies work, the university explains. They will also learn about opportunities to develop and market new technologies.
The program requires the completion of four courses from a portfolio of six or more courses.
‘Determining which technologies work and can be brought to market mass-scale is an urgent challenge for engineers and businesses,’ says Michael McGehee, associate professor of materials science and engineering and the academic director of the certificate program. ‘This is an exciting time to be in the energy field.’
