Climate change and global warming are widely recognized as the major problems facing the globe.
All the global problems mainly related to energy and the environment are complex and must be solved only through integrated interdisciplinary approaches.
The Department of Converged Energy and Environmental Engineering was established to meet the growing need for an interdisciplinary approach with special attention to the convergence that integrates advanced energy and environmental technologies.
The program aims to develop highly qualified and committed professionals who will actively confronting these global challenges both through research and practice.
