The study of sustainability and renewable energy systems addresses the concerns of world resources, including energy and renewable energy, and their social, economic, and environmental impacts. The field is expected to grow significantly over the next decade, and there’s never been a better time to get involved.

Our sustainability and renewable energy systems program, with only a handful of similar programs in the United States, provides strong foundational knowledge in traditional and renewable energy systems and their impacts on society. You'll develop comprehensive skills that will allow you to offer solutions related to technical, economic, social, and environmental challenges related to energy, efficiency, and renewable resource management.

At UW-Platteville, you’ll gain hands-on experience through co-ops, internships, and senior design projects. Sustainability and renewable energy systems graduates are creative problem-solvers who find careers with utility companies, energy producers and auditors, building design and construction firms, various levels of municipalities, and more.
