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.

Vinay Konuru: Uniting the next generation of energy leaders

After a coast-to-coast bike trip ended in an accident near Death Valley National Park, Vinay Konuru found himself with a broken collarbone and an unexpected amount of free time. Recuperating at his home in Florida in the summer before his sophomore year at Princeton, Konuru picked up every book he could get his hands on. One book, The Grid by Gretchen Bakke, would change his trajectory as a student.
