About the Consortium
The Consortium for Integrating Energy Systems in Engineering and Science Education (CIESESE) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DoE)-sponsored project with the goal of increasing the pipeline of graduates ready to pursue a career in energy relevant fields. Among the activities of the consortium is the participation of faculty and students, from Engineering and the Physical Sciences, in Energy Systems Research. Energy systems refers to the infrastructure, technologies, and procedures to generate, store, and distribute energy for use by individual consumers and by the public and private/industrial sectors.
Universidad Ana G. Méndez - Recinto Gurabo (formerly Universidad del Turabo (UT)), a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HIS), under the Puerto Rico Energy Center (PREC), together with four HSI partner universities and two national laboratories, proposed the CIESESE to achieve the aforementioned goal. CIESESE directly supports DOE’s goal to build a sustainable professional and academic pipeline, in particular professionals from the Hispanic community, ready to take on the challenges of current and future energy systems.
