Needed skills include discovery science, feedstock development and production, logistics, pilot-scale and commercial-scale industrial conversion, business and marketing, education, economics and social sciences.

The minor is open to all majors and provides:

  • Excellent employment prospects

This research-based interdisciplinary minor provides an introduction to bioenergy concepts and issues, and a significant research experience. Apply soon!
