Oakland U Launches Energy Management Certificate Program

Oakland University’s School of Business Administration and the School of Engineering and Computer Science are partnering to deliver a professional certificate program that prepares participants to differentiate themselves in their careers, and help their organizations become sustainable enterprises.

The new Energy Management Certificate Program begins Sept. 10, spans eight weeks, and consists of three modules, held on Fridays and Saturdays. Participants will interact closely with professors, industry leaders and peers while they acquire interdisciplinary skills and strategies for effective energy management.

More specifically, the program will educate engineering and business professionals from any organization interested in reducing energy costs, boosting bottom-line performance and becoming more competitive by ensuring participants:

* understand 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, and
* acquire real-world skills to evaluate, analyze and implement the best conventional and alternative energy choices.

The cost of the six-week certificate program is $1,500, which includes all materials and lunches. Classes begin Sept. 10, and will be held Fridays and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. To learn more about the modules and schedule or to register for the program, visit www.oakland.edu/energymgmt or contact Maureen Callaghan at mpcallag@oakland.edu or (248) 412-3235.
