New Degree Program for Clean Energy Systems
June 25, 2010

This fall, engineering students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will be able to convert their passion for renewable energy into a degree, with a new track in Clean Energy Systems. The program, offered to mechanical engineering majors at the university’s Daytona Beach, Fla., campus, will teach about turbines that convert wind and water power into electricity, systems that make energy from the heat of the sun, earth, and ocean, and systems for storing energy.

Students will take courses and complete projects related to hybrid vehicles, solar lighting, green engineering, and eco-friendly aviation. They will learn from faculty researchers who are designing a low-emission hybrid automobile, engineering giant wind-power turbines, developing systems to harness electric power from the Gulf Stream’s currents, testing unleaded bio-fuel for general aviation, and building a zero-emission aircraft.

Graduates will earn a mechanical engineering degree accredited by Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
