Penn State is launching online graduate certificate programs at its Penn State World Campus in wind energy, bioenergy, solar energy, and sustainability management and policy. The university says the certificates can help adults build additional skills in such areas as project development, sustainability assessment, systems engineering, and strategic planning.

"Penn State's programs are designed to provide working professionals with the latest knowledge and skills needed for success in the renewable energy field,” says Daniel Ciolkosz, academic program coordinator for Penn State’s online intercollege Master of Professional Studies in Renewable Energy and Sustainability Systems (iMPS-RESS). “Students can start with a certificate and continue in the master’s program, or if they have a master’s degree, they can use the certificate as a stand-alone educational credential.”

All of the online courses in the certificate programs can be applied toward the iMPS-RESS, and Penn State is now accepting applications.
