OSU-Cascades’ energy systems engineering (ESE) program is a combination of mechanical and industrial engineering core courses supplemented with energy-related and business management courses, and is offered in partnership with Oregon State University’s College of Engineering. Energy systems engineers oversee complex energy conversion and distribution systems, work to improve energy storage systems, and manage the efficient use of energy in building, manufacturing, and processing systems. These engineers also study the secondary effects of energy usage from a local environmental impact, regional and national economic impact, and global climate change perspective.
