Fueling a Clean Energy Future

A key ingredient to achieving our goals are the highly qualified personnel (HQP) — the students and postdoctoral scholars — who are the lifeblood of these research projects. Their ideas, enthusiasm and passion drive much of what we do as a research-intensive university. Their energy and tireless pursuit of excellence enables us to deliver on our commitment to take our energy research from great to best, to operate ‘not business as usual’, and to make significant impacts in scholarship, training, industry solutions, and contributions to the community.
