The certificate program introduces students and professionals to the multiple interdisciplinary facets of energy ranging from an overview of energy technologies (fossil-based, renewable, and non-fossil based) to multi-scale energy systems engineering methods, to energy economics, law, security, policy, and societal impact.
Truly Interdisciplinary Impact
Seminars and lectures are delivered by distinguished energy experts from academia, industry, and government. Faculty from the:
- Bush School of Government and Public Service
- College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
- College of Architecture
- College of Engineering
- College of Geosciences
- College of Liberal Arts
- Mays Business School
- School of Law
are participating in the Certificate in Energy program.
STEM OPT Extension: Not Eligible
The Master of Science in Energy offered by the Texas A&M Energy Institute, and approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, has CIP code: 30.9999.04 Multi/Interdisciplinary Studies, Other. According to the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program, this code is not among the codes on the 2016 STEM designated list. The majority of the courses within the Master of Science in Energy at Texas A&M University are individually designated as STEM courses, but that factor alone is not sufficient to merit a full designation as a STEM program. Therefore, students who graduate with a Master of Science in Energy are not eligible for the Optional Practical Training Extension for STEM Students (STEM OPT).
