Master’s Degree Offered in Alternative Fuels

November 19, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The first Master’s degree program in the nation specifically involving alternative fuel technology will soon be offered at Michigan’s Wayne State AET program. The state of Michigan’s non-profit NextEnergy is providing the spark and support for alternative fuel technology (AET) certificate, associate degree, and engineering master’s degree programs at in-state colleges and universities to galvanize an alternative fuel technology economy in Michigan. According to Interim Dean Ralph Kummler, the first course (Fundamental Alternative Energy I) is planned for the winter semester and will be open to students with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, and perhaps other mathematics-based sciences. The study will focus on many aspects including fuel cell catalysts, thermal management, control systems, smart sensors, process safety, vehicle design, traffic simulation, infrastructure management and engineering management.
