May
6, 2010, El Paso, TX – The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is offering a
new PhD track in energy science and engineering. UTEP’s mechanical engineering department
will begin offering coursework for the new energy science and engineering
doctoral track within the interdisciplinary PhD program in environmental
science and engineering on May 7, 2010.

“During
the last two decades, the U.S. energy research and development enterprises have
experienced a ‘missing generation’ of energy engineers and professionals,” says
Dr. Ahsan Choudhuri, chair of UTEP’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
“There are simply not enough graduate students enrolled in energy disciplines
at U.S. universities to replace the engineers and scientists who plan to retire
within the next five to eight years.”

The
energy science and engineering program will include research topics such as
fossil fuel power generation efficiency improvement, carbon capture and
storage, high-capacity renewable power generation, and aerospace propulsion.
