Summary

I am anticipating graduation in June 2011 with a B.S. in Renewable Energy Engineering.

"The degree program begins by establishing a solid foundation of physics, chemistry and mathematics, which pave the way for coursework in electrical and mechanical engineering.  Upper-division courses in renewable-energy specific courses include photovoltaics, energy management and auditing, wind power, biofuels, renewable-energy transportation systems, green building and fuel cells.  The Renewable Energy curriculum prepares graduates for engineering careers in the energy sector in general, and the renewable energy in particular." 

 I see my extensive experience with energy efficiency, data collection and analysis skills,  communication skills, and passion for renewable energy as my major strengths.
