UH Energy, at the University of Houston, is offering the Sustainable Energy Development Program, to equip you – the rising energy professional – with skills, knowledge and expertise to tackle the Energy Trilemma. The Energy Trilemma requires affordable, accessible and reliable, and environmentally responsible energy solutions. Advancing solutions that simultaneously satisfy all elements of this trilemma are the foundation and essence of the Sustainable Energy Development Program.
This interactive online program includes hands-on experience and real-world examples. Designed and presented by leaders from industry and accomplished faculty from the University of Houston, the program provides a structured series of micro-credentials or “badges” that cover the changing energy landscape and build the skills to succeed in it.
The credentialing program delivers a multi-disciplinary understanding of challenges and solutions to achieve sustainable energy development, and it is taught by world class instructors, including leaders from industry and the marketplace and accomplished faculty from the University of Houston, the Energy University, in the Energy Capital of the World.
The program will be offered in 15-hour modules, each over a 4-week period. Digital badges are awarded for each module, and sets of 3 badges you will earn a Belt. The introductory Bronze Belt is followed by an intermediate Silver Belt, and finally an advanced Gold Belt. The badges and belts provide a permanent record, endorsed by UH Energy and the University of Houston, that can be made a part of your resume to credential your new skills.
