Energy Technology and Policy
What are energy leaders saying about ETP?
"This is an excellent program. It is extremely important that our future leaders understand technology and that our future engineers understand the policy implications of new technologies and how to integrate them into society. This program links energy technology and policy, and has a flexible curriculum. Graduates will have great potential for a successful career as energy leaders."
Robert B. Catell, Chairman, Advanced Energy Center; Former Chairman, U.S. National Grid; and Former
Chairman and CEO, KeySpan Corp.
"The multi-disciplinary structure and system approach of the new course of study will provide a more informed understanding of the complexity of Energy, a central determinant of economic development, environment and climate change. This new and timely course would improve the knowledge base for problem solving"

“[The TSM] program really broadened my view on how technology interacts with society and how we can take a more systemic approach to assess and manage the benefits and risks that technology brings to society. The friendly academic environment made it very easy for me to go through two important transitions, from Chinese culture to American culture, and from a technical discipline (mechanical engineering) to a more interdisciplinary and exciting field (technological systems management).”
