More U.S. college students are looking into careers in alternative energy, leading U.S. universities to add new courses on clean energy technologies and the environment, MSNBC reports.
The number of Berkeley undergraduates enrolled in introductory energy courses has almost tripled and a new graduate class in solar photovoltaics signed up 70 students, the largest course in recent memory at U.C.’s College of Engineering.
