Scientific and technological advances will be key to addressing the energy challenges of the 21st century, in which global energy needs will more than double by 2050. This school will provide an overview of current issues and sustainable technologies in energy generation, collection, storage, utilization.
The SSUN Energy Summer School is a two-week residential program for enrolled science and engineering graduate students* who have serious interest in energy research. Energy science and engineering requires a collaborative effort, and we invite students from a variety of disciplines (physics and condensed matter physics, materials science and engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering, bio-sciences, geosciences, and electrical and mechanical engineering) to apply. Space is no longer available for auditors.
Support for this school is generously provided by program sponsors. Students will be provided meals and accommodations; students are only required to pay a non-refundable registration fee ($250) upon admission. Enrollment is limited to 40 students. Certificates will be awarded upon completion of the school.
Students accepted into the SSUN Energy Summer School will be offered free accommodations at the Stanford Guest House, located on SLAC's campus.
