  1. The courses listed above have been accepted by the Faculty Steering Committee of the Graduate Portfolio in Energy Studies (GPPES) as meeting the requirement for approved energy-related coursework. Other energy-related courses may count towards the requirement, at the discretion of the GPPES Graduate Advisor. Students are encouraged to submit their own lists of courses to the Graduate Coordinator, who will consult with the GPPES Graduate Advisor as to their suitability.
  2. Only graduate level courses may count towards the coursework requirement. Some departments allow senior undergraduates to take graduate level courses, typically under a separate unique course identifier. These courses are acceptable provided the student registers under a graduate level unique identifier.
  3. Registration in any course is at the discretion of the instructor, who may refuse registration to any student.
  4. The list has been updated to match the fall 2015 course schedules and includes courses that have been taught since the spring semester of 2012. No guarantee is given that any given course will be offered in future. Students should check the accuracy of the information with the course instructor.
