Institute for Energy Studies (IES)
The Institute for Energy Studies (IES) pursues new frontiers in energy education, research and outreach that enable the development of the next generation of integrated energy technologies that are economically competitive, reliable, sustainable, and politically and environmentally acceptable.
To realize this vision, the Institute has established the following three-fold mission:
- Facilitate the coordination of the College of Engineering & Mines’ multidisciplinary energy education, outreach, research, development and commercialization activities in partnership with all UND campus units, other NDUS campuses, and federal, state, and industrial partners.
- Provide well-trained graduates cognizant of the issues facing the energy industry today and in future generations by engaging students in education that is focused on the technical, social, political, environmental, and economic needs of the world-wide community.
- Develop a multi-disciplinary scientifically balanced research portfolio aimed at accelerating the implementation of efficient and environmentally sustainable energy production technologies.
