An important goal of the Andlinger Center is to provide Princeton undergraduates with the opportunity to explore issues related to energy and the environment in a multi-dimensional fashion. These dimensions include building and deploying energy systems, quantitatively analyzing the impact of these systems on economic growth and society, and evaluating their impact on climate change and the environment. The center aims to train the next generation of leaders who will help forge a sustainable future through their work in science, engineering, architecture, economics, public policy, and environmental areas related to energy systems.
In order to successfully engage practical and effective energy solutions, an appreciation for different points of view on these issues is critical. Our certificate programs welcome students in all disciplines—humanities, social sciences, physical and natural sciences, and engineering—who are interested in understanding and working on energy solutions.
