Energy Engineering Technology

Purdue University in West Lafayette

The future technologies of power systems consist of energy from renewable sources, such as wind, solar and geothermal, and more efficient power transfer that use smart grids and distributed power generation. Learn the engineering principles, economic power consumption and process improvements needed to create these energy-efficient systems for both residential and industrial purposes.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute is one of 10 academic colleges at Purdue University. The Polytechnic specializes in team-based labs where you’ll test ideas, take things apart and put them back together — only better. You’ll learn side-by-side with professors who have worked in the industry and thrive on combining theory, imagination and real-world application. In this innovative environment, you'll learn by doing - gaining deep technical knowledge and applied skills in your chosen discipline coupled with problem-solving, critical-thinking, communication and leadership skills employers desire.
