Clean energy is becoming such a big deal that Purdue University is packaging it as a college degree.

The bachelor’s in energy engineering and technology will be offered only at IUPUI and is believed to be one of only a handful of such programs offered by big-name universities around the country.

The program includes courses from chemistry, physics, and electrical and mechanical engineering. Students will be able to concentrate in areas such as green building, biofuels, fuel cells, hybrid transportation and wind/solar/nuclear energy systems.

Purdue is touting potential learning opportunities with IUPUI’s Richard G. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy, which has been conducting leading-edge research in a number of energy technologies such as fuel cells.

The program “will prepare students to find innovative ways to extract and use energy efficiently and sustainably, emphasizing high-quality research experiences,” said David Russomanno, dean of engineering and technology.

Registration for the four-year program begins in the fall semester.
