"There are two things I find exciting about the Institute. One is that our graduates are going to have the depth and breadth of education to not only enter the energy workforce, but to become leaders in the development of our future energy landscape. The second is the incredibly broad support this program has, from leaders of industry, politics and academia. They know a good thing when they see it!"

Educating the leaders for our clean and efficient energy future through interdisciplinary studies and research.
