Energy Systems Engineering Undergraduate Major (BS, HBS)
Available only at OSU-Cascades.
At Oregon State University, the Energy Systems Engineering degree program combines engineering fundamentals with energy-focused technical courses and business management classes. This multidisciplinary curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in the core principles of mechanical, electrical and industrial engineering.
Program Educational Objectives—Energy Systems Engineering
Note: The Bachelor of Science and Honors Bachelor of Science degrees in Energy Systems Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.ABET.org, which requires stated program educational objectives and student outcomes to support these.
OSU Energy Systems Engineering graduates receive an innovative education, and within 3 to 5 years of graduation will have:
- Created value to organizations through the analysis, evaluation, and improvement of engineered systems and processes using appropriate systems engineering methods and tools.
- Communicated effectively across disciplines and cultures to manage and/or lead activities in support of organizational goals and objectives.
- Innovated systems and processes, in response to organizational challenges, though the application of structured and unstructured systems engineering methodologies, including engineering design and problem-solving.
Major Code: 293
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
