education in energy and the environment

Training the next generation of leaders in energy and environmental issues is a key goal of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. Students can enroll in Andlinger Center courses (course code ENE) on topics including sustainable design, biofuels, solar energy, geoengineering, and more. Students also have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to practice in laboratory courses through the design of sustainable building system components, such as temperature sensors, and the fabrication and testing of batteries.

Read our Annual Report

The Andlinger Center’s annual report for the academic year 2021-2022 focuses on the Center’s interdisciplinary research and the growth of the E-ffiliates program – synergies, with each other and with external partners, to identify solutions to aid in the global energy transition.

Young Global Leaders at Andlinger Center

“Advancing the Global Energy Transition,” was an executive education program at Princeton University June 26 to 29, hosted by the World Economic Forum and its Young Global Leaders program, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, and Princeton University.

My Sustainability Story

Claire Wayner, Class of 2022, left her mark at Princeton University in many ways, including co-founding the Princeton Birding Society and leading a team that won the 2022 World Series of Birding. She’s also a strong advocate for campus building practices that reduce bird-window collisions and save birds’ lives. (Currently, as many as 1 billion birds die each year in the U.S. from flying into windows.)
