The new millennium has brought to the fore a global interest in the future of the energy industry. As more countries join the ranks of industrialized economies, the need for larger energy resources has dramatically increased. The growth of the energy sector has called for professionals who not only command a strong grasp of technical knowledge in the field, but also the leadership skills to be ethical problem solvers in a complex industry.

This cutting-edge certificate is particularly designed for students who are pursuing the Petroleum Engineering and Environmental Engineering majors at Marietta College.
