Energy and the Environment
The Department offers programs relevant to the study of energy and environmental issues at both the Undergraduate and Graduate level.
Undergraduate Students may combine their departmental studies with courses and research opportunities offered through the
Program in Sustainable Energy.
Graduate students can engage in research with faculty in a variety of energy related areas, including:
Combustion and Energy Conversion (Law, Ju, Carter, Mueller, Haataja)
Alternative Energy Sources (Carter, Martinelli, Smits, McAlpine, Suckewer, Smits)
Storage Systems (Arnold, Steingart)
Fission/Fusion (Suckewer, Glaser, Rowley/Kasdin, Carter, Stone)
Energy Efficiency (Martinelli, Carter, Soboyejo, McAlpine)
Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
Research at the Andlinger Center will focus on making fundamental discoveries in engineering and applied science and moving those findings rapidly into the marketplace. Major areas of research will include improving energy efficiency and conservation; developing sustainable energy sources; and improving management of carbon, the component of fossil fuels that leads to the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

Combustion Energy Frontier Research Center
Princeton University is home to a new $20 million energy research center for combustion science as part of a federal initiative to spur discoveries that lay the groundwork for an economy based on clean replacements for fossil fuels.
The center is one of 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers across the country that together are expected to receive $777 million in U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science funding, part of which will come from the recent federal economic stimulus package.
