Opportunities & Resources
The College of Engineering & Mines Energy Studies (CEMES) is structured to respond to the Global energy challenges.The fundamental research efforts needed to answer the most basic scientific questions provide information, which in turn allows technical barriers to be overcome through education, training, research and development. The CEMES’ vision is realized through the integration of the academia, research, industry and government partners. CEMES is intended to provide a comprehensive analysis of issues facing the energy industry by integrating various energy-related activities at the university. We recognize that engineering solutions must be supported by strong science and account for the social, political, economic, and regulatory issues that drive potential solutions. Our program is aimed at educating and training the next generation of energy engineers with the necessary skills needed to foster sustainable partnerships with key energy stakeholders like; the energy industries, public and non-governmental organizations, federal, state and local governments, university communities and international governments and agencies.
To drive the advancement of research, projects and coursework, the College of Engineering & Mines Energy Studies (CEMES) employs graduate students from a variety of engineering fields as Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) or Research Lab Assistant, and Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA). CEMES believes in the importance of training future engineers by providing crucial applied skills and experience opportunities that would enable students transition seamlessly into the industry.
The College of Engineering & Mines Energy Studies (CEMES) also helps students in their research through internship programs to work on large-scale energy research projects at research centres across campus and the Industries. These research centres include:
- College of Engineering & Mines Research Institutes (CEMRI)
- Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC)
- Hydrogen production, storage and utilization
- Energy storage systems
- Energy policy & strategy
- CO2 capture and storage
- Geothermal energy
- Renewable fuels and chemicals
