Energy Management program to energize students in new economyIn transitioning to a new energy economy, a growing number of regional business and community organizations are developing processes, products and services necessary to adapt to changing regulatory, tax, supply-chain and demand environments. As a result, the emerging clean energy sector is poised to expand significantly in coming years.
Oakland University's School of Business Management and School of Engineering and Computer Sciences have responded to growing demand in this field by partnering to create an Energy Management Certificate Program that focuses on innovative means of reducing energy costs, boosting bottom line performance and becoming more competitive.
Students in this six-week course will learn to better understand energy usage, implement cost- and energy-saving strategies, apply sustainable principles and practices, and acquire practical skills to evaluate efficient energy choices.
Students also will benefit from the expertise that a diverse group of engineering and business faculty experts bring to the program. To learn more about the accomplished educators involved, those interested can visit the energy management website listed below.
Oakland's program is ideal for engineers and technicians; facility, maintenance and energy managers; design professionals; green sales representatives; architects, contractors and subcontractors; and any business professional or individual interested or involved in the green energy field.
Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays from Friday, Jan. 21, through Saturday, March 10. Friday sessions may be taken on-line to accommodate superseding work commitments.
The course's $2,000 registration cost includes all materials and lunches. To learn more, check program dates or to register, visit oakland.edu/energymgmt or contact Maureen Callaghan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (248) 412-3235.
