Brief Overview

The overall objective for the Energy Academic Group is to develop and maintain NPS as a Navy Center of Excellence for Energy Graduate Education and Research. The EAG will also actively explore educational and research partnerships across the full spectrum of Department of Defense (DOD) related organizations, Department of Energy (DOE), as well as other universities, industry, and nonprofit sectors.

EN3000 Defense Energy Seminar (2-0) Fall/Winter/Spring/Summer

To ensure that students receive the most current and credible information, the Naval Postgraduate School has invited talks from nationally and internationally known speakers. These speakers' seminars will be an important contribution to the student's overall education in energy, and will help the student further develop the breadth required to understand and address the Nation's growing challenges in energy security.

Certificate in Defense Energy - Curriculum 234

Brief Overview

The Academic Certificate Program in Energy is designed to support the SECNAV's Energy goals, in educating those who are resident at NPS but are  not directly detailed into the Energy programs, or those who do not have the opportunity to attend NPS.

Normally, the certificate will consist of either: four graduate courses; or three graduate courses and two consecutive quarters of EN3000, Defense Energy Seminar. A minimum of 12 credit hours is required.

PH3700 is required, but other courses are elective.  Students may select from the relevant courses available during the quarter(s) of enrollment.  Each student's required course work is developed individually under the direction of the cognizant Academic Associate, to fall within one of three focus areas:  Energy (Science & Technology); Energy (Policy & Analysis); or Energy (General) which combines S&T with P&A.
