2024 Investiture Information

Energy Infrastructure Research

Energy infrastructure research is part of the overall program area of mechanical, operations, and systems engineering (MOSE) at Dartmouth, viewing the world as a series of interconnected systems and using this approach to solve complex problems of the modern world—from climate change, to sustainable energy, to pandemics.

Understanding cyber-physical energy systems and their integration is critical to improving sustainability and resilience in interdependent smart infrastructures. Dartmouth is active in research that supports the design, planning, and operations of large scale engineering systems involving energy, water, structures, transportation and industrial activities.
