Clean Energy Degree Programs Expanding at Universities in Ohio
Rising student interest in the last three years highlights increasing enrollment
 
 
Legislators are increasingly pushing us towards a clean energy future by proposing and passing clean energy legislation. This means new clean energy jobs and a need for industry workers with higher education. This growing need is pushing universities to expand their degree programs related to clean energy. Ohio universities are a great example.
 
The University of Dayton has graduate degrees in renewable and clean energy and a new bachelor’s degree in sustainability. The bachelor's degree program has an enrollment goal of 25 students per year.
 
There are other Ohio universities that are expanding their clean energy course offerings due to demand as well.  Case Western University’s Think Energy fellowship applications increased 50% from the 2015-16 school year to last school year. The Energy Engineering bachelor’s program at Ohio University experienced over an 800% enrollment increase from 2013-14 to the 2018-19 school year. Ohio State University is looking to establish a training center for students interested in smart grid and sustainability jobs.
 
In the midwest as well as nationwide, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and digital grid initiatives are rising and causing a demand for more workers with higher education credentials. As of June 21 the clean energy jobs board, Dayaway Careers, top five positions required either an undergraduate or graduate degree.
