Help make manufacturing processes easier and more efficient.
With a heavy reliance on fossil fuels, Mother Nature is scraping the bottom of the barrel to meet our increasing energy needs. Scientists around the world are spending time, resources, and research dollars trying to find alternative sources of power that are clean, reliable, and efficient. A Renewable Fuels Engineer is one type of Engineer or Scientist who works to make renewable fuels a viable option.
A career as a Renewable Fuels Engineer offers the rewarding opportunity to improve the lives, lungs, and health of the next generation. Whether you study wind, design a system that relies on sunlight, or focus on processing biofuels, the result is less reliance on coal and oil, and the development of inexhaustible energy sources.
As a Renewable Fuels Engineer, you contribute directly to a red-hot field of science. From building wind farms to processing seaweed into energy, you have plenty of opportunities to flex your teamwork skills. So don’t forget your toolbox of creativity, scientific understanding, and research know-how.
With your understanding of natural elements and how they’re converted into fuel, you could work in the research phase or consult during the production process. Heck, you could even write the production manual! If you’d rather travel and work in the field, you could focus on geothermal energy, locate and design wind farms, or test out dams and other water systems that produce energy.
