The Energy Engineering Program at the University of the Philippines College of Engineering was instituted in 1983 with the objective of training specialists who will
· develop indigenous sources of energy;
· improve the efficiency of energy utilization, and;
· introduce appropriate energy technologies.
The program was envisioned to be multi-disciplinary, with lectures and thesis and dissertation advisers coming from the faculty of the different departments and institutes of the college. The curriculum was revised in 2009 and 2013 to provide a more responsive and comprehensive knowledge base that will enhance the expertise of researchers, engineers, and scientists in developing and managing applied energy technologies and in developing analytical tools for energy planning; to effectively transmit critical technical and policy-oriented knowledge to support institutions, and; to meet the demands of the dynamic and complex character of an evolving energy sector within a competitive and market-based framework
