Developing secure, resilient, and adaptive energy infrastructure that fosters economic growth while reducing environmental impact is among the most pressing challenges—and greatest opportunities—of our time. It will require the next generation of thought leaders to capably and creatively guide this vital energy sector transition.
Through a new interdisciplinary graduate program, Colorado School of Mines (Mines) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are cultivating the rich opportunity landscape needed to develop these future innovators. The Mines/NREL Advanced Energy Systems (AES) degree program prepares researchers at the doctoral level and energy professionals at the master’s level to address the full complexity of tomorrow’s infrastructure, economic, and environmental challenges.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to:
- Attend a world-class university and work with leading researchers at NREL
- Access and use NREL’s state-of-the-art tools, equipment, and facilities
- Work toward solutions to pressing energy and environmental challenges
- Collaborate with NREL’s industry, government, research, and nonprofit partners
- Network with leaders in the new energy economy
- Jump-start your career in the energy sector.
