The Energy Engineering program is open only to students currently enrolled in the program. Enrollment is closed to all new students and all transfer students. Energy Engineering students meet with their Academic Advisor every semester to update their degree maps and identify all courses needed for graduation. Indiana Tech will offer the required Energy Engineering courses for current students; in some cases, approved substitute courses will be offered to meet the Energy Engineering graduation requirements.
Graduates of the energy engineering program will understand the fundamental science and math relevant to energy production, distribution, regulation and end use. They will be able to apply engineering concepts, calculations and computer models to solve problems and analyze designs in these areas. The graduates will participate in a multi-year energy project, in which they address engineering project issues, such as allocating resources, meeting milestones and solving specific engineering problems. Graduates will have basic knowledge in business and accounting to identify an appropriate balance of business and technical issues.
Student Learning Outcomes
Energy engineering graduates will successfully demonstrate the 7 ABET program outcomes:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles on engineering, science, and mathematics.
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
