Options within the Program

The Energy and Mineral Engineering graduate program offers students a uniquely flexible curriculum that gives them the opportunity to develop their own program of study beyond the minimum core requirements. Students who desire disciplinary identity of their research concentration area, may choose from five available options in: energy management and policy, environmental health and safety engineering, fuel science, mining and mineral process engineering, petroleum and natural gas engineering. Students may also focus their research on sustainable energy engineering and subsurface science and engineering.

No matter what area of research is of interest, students are not required to choose an option.
