This specialization offers a glimpse into the emerging technology that exists in the energy sector. As the worldwide supply of fossil fuels diminishes, and the demand for those fuels increases, new energy technology must be developed to power our planet. In recent years, energy sustainability and the use of infinite resources have been considered serious options for the first time. Thus, this focus area employs an interdisciplinary strategy with the goal of educating individuals on a broad-range of emerging technologies in relation to energy resources.
