EAP Seminar

One of the many benefits of the EAP program is exposure to diverse career opportunities. Learning about the experiences and pathways of energy professionals helps our graduate students work toward their own contributions advancing the field.

In Fall 2019, EAP is bringing in superstar professionals from across the energy industry to speak in our 1-credit seminar. Students in the EAP graduate certificate program are encouraged to enroll in this impactful class each Fall semester. In addition to learning about valuable professional skills, students will have the opportunity to network with the visiting professionals and EAP faculty.

The course (Env. Studies 900: Section 002 – Professional Skills in Energy Analysis and Policy) will be held from 11:00am to 12:00pm each Wednesday. If you have any questions about EAP or our Fall seminar, please contact EAP Program Coordinator Scott Williams.
