In 2013, the Energy and Sustainability minor was launched as the first UH program to identify specifically with sustainability and also caters to students interested in a career in the energy sector.
The Energy and Sustainability minor is designed to provide an interdisciplinary approach to broad issues in energy and sustainability. The minor educates students on the basics of energy sources, fossil fuels, and the future of energy. In addition to a common introductory and capstone course, the minor offers a blend of courses in technology, business, engineering, architecture, social science, and natural science.
