The Graduate Certificate in "Sustainable and Resilient Energy Systems" provides students with an interdisciplinary curriculum focused on technologies and policies for future smart energy systems that are sustainable, resilient, efficient, and market-oriented. The program prepares students for holistic design and operation challenges of emerging energy systems with distributed renewable energy sources, advanced information, communication, control and optimization technologies, along with supporting economic and management policies. This graduate certificate is beneficial to individuals (professionals, engineers and researchers) who have an interest in deployment and operation of future smart energy systems, in particular the challenges from the technology and policy perspectives.
The Sustainable and Resilient Energy Systems certificate partners with several UCF master's programs. If students complete the certificate and are accepted into a partnering program, all certificate coursework can be used toward that master's degree. Here is a list of our partnering UCF master's programs:
