    Overview

    The Sustainable Energy Engineering (SEE) course will give you the fundamental knowledge necessary to understand the challenges and opportunities in sustainable energy engineering, and to decide whether this is a field you want to pursue.???? 

    During this JHU three-credit course, you will learn about new sustainable energy technologies.

    Projects:

    Fossil fuels will eventually run out, and before they do, burning them for energy production will continue to contribute to our warming planet.? Where does all the energy that we use go, and how can we use less energy?

    Recognizing that even if we reduce our energy use, we will still need to make changes to energy production, can we design and implement new sustainable energy technologies that are resilient, economical, and can be incorporated into the existing power grid?

    To answer these questions and find ways to reduce energy usage, we must examine how we currently are using energy and study the science and engineering concepts behind our energy production and distribution methods, as well as the role policy plays in our ability to implement change.

    Eligibility:

    Grade and age requirements?-

    You must be a current high school student or recent high school graduate.??Our typical student is a rising junior (~35%) or senior (~65%) in high school. Talented ninth-graders (rising sophomores) may be considered; however, priority will be given to older students. Graduated seniors are also eligible to participate during the summer before they begin their college career.

    For 2024, students participating in a residential program must have been born between July 27, 2006, and June 30, 2009.; they must be at least 15 years of age on move-in day and no older than 17 years of age on the last day of the program. We cannot accept students who turn 18 before the final day of the course to a residential program. You must be under 18 years of age to live in the residence hall.
