Eberly Offering Energy Management Track

Posted on 1/16/2019 10:09:46 AM

The Eberly College of Business and Information Technology is offering a unique opportunity for students interested in the energy management field.

The Eberly College of Business and Information Technology's interdisciplinary track in energy management offers an introduction to the global energy industry from a number of perspectives, including geography, geoscience, and business.

“The long-term outlook for the oil and gas industry continues to be bright,” IUP Dean of the Eberly College Robert Camp said. “Pennsylvania is in the middle of a huge hydrocarbon deposit, the Marcellus Shale. For western Pennsylvania landowners with mineral rights, this should mean continuing wealth creation. For college graduates with related training this should mean job opportunities.”

The Energy Management track, part of the bachelor’s degree program in management, is the only industry-related program offered by the Eberly College. Many classes are offered in the late afternoon or evening for working professionals with daytime responsibilities, including Introduction to Energy Management (Thursdays at 5:05 p.m.) and Introduction to Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m.).

Planning is underway for a certificate program that will include many of the courses in the energy  management track leading to a bachelor’s degree.
