(Curricula undergoing revision)
The Creighton Energy Technology Program challenges students in science and math to explore innovation through experience and build a sustainable future. Highly motivated individuals who enjoy working with their minds, hands and a broader community of people will excel as Energy Technology students. Internships and senior projects provide direct contact with companies and industry partners across the region, while humanities and social science requirements are satisfied in the context of applied science classes. Nebraska's largest solar array acts as the program's outdoor classroom. We build on the model of St. Ignatius, who designed Jesuit education to form individuals with both the intellectual and practical backgrounds required to be effective contributors to the world.
The Bachelor of Science in Energy Studies and the Bachelor of Arts in Sustainable Energy degrees address energy issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. This is not a traditional curriculum. You will be able to use an atomic force microscope in your history class, learn statistics as you study weather forecasting in a course that studies energy load and yield, learn physics and math theory as you apply it in real world situations, and meet your speech and English requirements in a course that is co-taught with a physicist. This program allows students to learn in a hands-on environment that is tailored to the individual.
The program also allows incoming freshmen to jump-start their college education with summer courses and research opportunities in faculty laboratories. Please feel free to contact Program Director Dr. Michael Cherney for more information.
Thanks to the contributions of two extremely generous donors, the Kathleen Hartnett and William J. Roe Energy Technology Scholarship will be available in the fall semester of 2014 to incoming freshmen who are planning on majoring in Energy Technology. This year's donation of $12,500 will be divided up among a numer of qualifying applicants who will be chosen based on academic standing and financial need.
For more information on this momentous opportunity, contact Program Director Dr. Michael Cherney.
