OU launches innovative energy management certificate program

In transitioning to a new energy economy, a growing number of regional organizations are developing processes, products and services needed to adapt to changing regulatory, tax, supply-chain and demand environments. With the goal of supporting this economic transition, Oakland University’s School of Business Administration and School of Engineering and Computer Science are partnering to deliver an integrative professional certificate program in energy management.

The Energy Management Certificate Program will prepare engineering and business professionals to differentiate themselves in their careers and help their organizations become sustainable enterprises. Participants in this innovative program will:

  • Learn about energy usage and utilization options that lead to cost and energy savings
  • Apply sustainable principles to operations that reduce costs and or enhance corporate reputation
  • Acquire real-world skills to evaluate, analyze and implement the best conventional and or alternative energy choices.

The cost of the six-week program is $1,500, which includes all materials and lunches.

Classes will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays beginning on Friday, Sept. 10.

Registration is now under way. Those interested in registering or learning more should contact Maureen Callaghan at mpcallag@oakland.edu or (248) 412-3235, or visit the Web at www.oakland.edu/energymgmt.
