Clean Energy and Sustainability Certificate (Undergraduate)

As part of a state initiative funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, a Business and Professional Education for the Clean Energy Economy (BPECEE) program was developed by a joint effort between the School for the Environment and the Center for Sustainable Enterprise and Regional Competitiveness (SERC) at the College of Management.

The Clean Energy and Sustainability (CES) Program now offers workforce training in clean energy and sustainability at both undergraduate and graduate levels, including courses on climate change, clean energy technologies, and environmental management.

The CES undergraduate certificate comprises 5 courses in 5 core areas, including environmental science, policy, and management.
