Good Morning Energy Engineers

Here's a tip to help you move ahead

March 1, 2013

Volume 1. Issue 1

Alternative Energy

If you are interested in alternative energy, select a specific area in which to specialize!

Common Areas of specialization:

  • Solar (hotwater,PV, CSP)
  • Hydropower
  • Geothermal
  • Wind
  • Biomass
  • Biofuel

Methods of specialization:

  1. Read articles about trending technology in that area
  2. Enrolling in additional courses covering that subject
  3. Intern with a company that specializes in that area

While many of us already practice the second two suggestions, it is important to exercise your right to free knowledge by reading outside of assigned coursework.

Benefits of being fluent in your area of specialization:

  • You are motivated to contribute to conversations
  • You are more prepared for discussion topics for interviews
  • You are more knowledgeable of the world around you
