The Oregon State University - Cascades campus in Bend will welcome 20 transfer students in the fall, all of them headed to a one-year-old program designed to train the next generation of energy systems engineers.

The Energy Systems Engineering program launched last September in partnership with Central Oregon Community College. It’s intended to pair complex engineering with business concepts and identify solutions for energy efficiency. Graduates may land in jobs running wind farms. They might also evaluate the economic viability of new solar installations, manage complex energy conversion and distribution systems, work to improve energy storage or manage efficiency at large companies and manufacturers.

“I think it's for a student that's interested in making a difference with energy. It’s going to be a long-term challenge that’s with us forever and I think it’s a broad, flexible degree. It's going to offer you a lot of options with your career,” said Robin Feuerbacher, assistant professor and Tykeson Endowed Faculty Scholar of the Energy Systems Engineering program.
