Fall 2013 commencement at Eastern Illinois University will mark the first graduating class earning a master’s degree in sustainable energy.
The program, a collaborative effort of 10 departments throughout the university, prepares students to become leaders and managers in the energy industry. Students receive a mixture of hands-on learning and theory inside the classroom paired with internships and research practicums outside the classroom within EIU’s Renewable Energy Center.
Rob Raschke and David Stack are the first two graduates from this new multidisciplinary effort at EIU, said Peter Liu, graduate coordinator of the program. Raschke will also be the first student at EIU to receive a dual-degree with a master’s in sustainable energy and technology.
“We are very proud of the high quality and confident graduates from the new program,” Liu said.
