Faculty

Professors: James Burkhart (Program Director) and Tom Huber
Instructor: Ray Tirado

The Energy Science program is intended to be taken as a minor with various technical and non-technical degrees. Energy Science courses are also intended to supplement degree programs including but not limited to physics, geography, geology, engineering and economics. Interested students are urged to discuss the program with their major advisors.

The energy science program is designed to prepare students for careers in energy fields. Specifically, courses are offered in energy science, solar energy, wind energy, nuclear energy, and related fields such as remote sensing and climatology.

Depending on a student’s background and interest, a minor may be obtained which requires knowledge of calculus or courses may be selected to provide a less mathematical minor.

UCCS offers a major in Physics with an emphasis in energy science (called an energy science option). Please see Physics, BS   for more information on this option.
