Sem:Adv Resrch in Energy Polcy

This seminar has two goals: to expose students to professional environments and career opportunities in energy and resources, and to use and integrate skills developed in earlier energy and environment courses in producing a research paper of professional caliber. There will be four main activities: (1) conducting a group research project and producing a high quality paper; (2) making visits to organizations working in energy and resources, in the public, private, and non-profit sectors; (3) attending guest lectures by professionals working in the field, covering both their current work and “tricks of the trade” for career-development; and (4) developing a database of information sources relevant to conducting research and finding jobs in energy and resources, which can be turned into a MIIS energy/climate website.
