Addressing society’s clean energy needs and demands is the core focus of the electrochemical engineering minor. The minor integrates skill sets in fundamentals of electrochemistry (e.g. chemistry, physics, mathematics, thermodynamics, and chemical kinetics) and electrochemical engineering applications (batteries, solar, flow and fuel cells, electrochemical synthesis and corrosion) to ensure successful career opportunities and growth within electrochemical power generation industries, government agencies, and academia.
The curriculum should allow students in energy related programs such as chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and materials science and engineering to readily take advantage of the minor and be better prepared for careers in clean power generation and future green technologies.
