Clean Energy Engineering: Creating Change in Sustainable Energy
In November 2018, students from the Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in Clean Energy Engineering attended the Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC) Information Session to learn more about the research being conducted in sustainable energy and the challenges we face today.
The session commenced with an overview of the Clean Energy Research Centre presented by Steven Rogak, CERC’s Associate Director. Students had the opportunity to learn about the Centre’s mission to develop viable solutions for sustainable energy through education, research, and innovation.
Following the overview, students visited several CERC labs to learn about the innovative research currently being conducted in the Centre. The labs included the New Fuels Bio-Process Lab, Biomass and the Gas Hydrate Technologies Lab. Additionally, the CERC hosted several workshops on sustainable energy topics such as biomass and bioenergy, hydrogen generation, and engine combustion. The overall tour allowed students to connect clean energy engineering course concepts to current advancing research in sustainable energy and how it impacts society.
“[I] would have regretted not learning more about the CERC while studying in the MEL in CEEN program due to strong connections between the two programs.” (Student Feedback)
In collaboration with the Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC) and the UBC Sauder School of Business, the Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) professional degree allows students to learn from industry leaders to give them an advantage to accelerate their career.
