Brief Description: The Texas A&M Energy Institute was founded in 2009 and is a joint institute between Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES). It is led by a director who reports to the Texas A&M University Vice President for Research. The Texas A&M Energy Institute pursues and supports new approaches for multi-disciplinary energy research, education, and external partnerships. These approaches cross departmental and college boundaries and address all facets of the energy landscape that naturally connect engineering, sciences, technologies, economics, law, and policy. Dedicated to discovering energy solutions and improving the quality of life, the Texas A&M Energy Institute engages undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral associates, research staff, and faculty members toward the study and development of innovative technologies and policies for energy production and energy conservation. The Energy Institute engages in interdisciplinary research with more than 270 faculty affiliates from nine colleges, more than 20 Texas A&M University departments, two Texas A&M University branch campuses, and two Texas A&M University System agencies. Beyond research, it aims to educate the next generation of leaders in energy through its innovative Master of Science in Energy and Energy Certificate educational programs, foster an integrated approach and research agenda across disciplines and develop quantitative tools for the analysis of energy systems that will point the way to sustainability for decision-makers and a better quality of life.
