Welcome to the Department of Energy and Environmental Engineering

The Department was established in the 2012/2013 academic year to run a four-year BSc. Renewable Energy Engineering programme with the aim of fully integrating renewable energy generating technologies and environmental issues to meet the changing demands of the energy industry, particularly in Ghana and the West Africa sub- region.

The Renewable Energy Engineering programme provides knowledge in the scientific and engineering foundations and skills for such needs as alternative fuel technology, renewable energy, hydrogen fuel cell development and utilization, solar energy, energy extraction and geothermal storage, fusion and nuclear energy and the technologies for understanding and mitigating the environmental impacts of energy usage

In the 2013/2014 academic year, another four-year BSc Environmental Engineering programme was mounted by the Department with the aim of fully integrating environmental engineering technologies and management principles to meet the challenging and dynamic demands of the industries as well as other biotic and abiotic activities in Ghana and in the West Africa sub-region.
