University of Dayton Clean Energy Program Exceeding Expectations

Dec 27, 2012

An expanding program in clean and renewable energy at the University of Dayton is exceeding enrollment expectations and drawing students from around the world.

The program at UD has swelled to three times the school's expectations for enrollment since it was launched in 2009.

Among its 50 students, the program has three Fulbright scholars - a record for any one program at the university.  Fulbright scholars are international students chosen for their academics and leadership potential.

Professor Kelley Kissock tells the Dayton Daily News that one of the greatest strengths of the program is that its students are in demand all over.

One report says as many as 40 million Americans could be working in renewable energy and energy efficiency by 2030.
