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.

Applications open: Andlinger Center Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship

This program supports outstanding scholars whose research focuses on innovative solutions to pressing technological, economic, and/or policy challenges relating to energy and the environment. Deadline to submit nominations is December 16, 2022.

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.)
