Modern structures for aerospace applications require the advanced knowledge of specialty beams, trusses, frames, rings, and monocoque members. Design engineers have started substituting heavier metal-based components with their lightweight composite counterparts. These hybrid designs, involving coupled metal/composite elements, which are now becoming commonplace, have drastically different failure responses, and understanding such structural failure is paramount to designing the next generation of safe and reliable aerospace vehicles.

Position yourself at the forefront of energy technology, processes, and industry. Earn a graduate certificate in Molecular Engineering of Energy Technologies and connect to notable Stanford faculty. This certificate includes advanced coursework in the molecular basis and engineering of new energy technologies.Design your own certificate by completing four courses consisting of the introductory course (if appropriate) and three of the five advanced courses focusing on catalysis, soft materials and polymers, bioenergy, electrochemical conversion, and entrepreneurship. Those with a solid background in science and engineering may elect to waive the introductory course and select four of the five advanced courses.The introductory course Energy: Chemical Transformations for Production, Storage, and Use covers both fuel cells and bioenergy and offers an overview of the fundamentals, challenges, and entrepreneurial opportunities of energy supply and consumption, with an emphasis on energy technologies at the intersection of chemistry and engineering, as well as emergining technologies. This course is strongly recommended as it provides a strong base of knowledge for the advanced courses. ChemEng432 covers fuel cells in greater depth, examining the overall device and then providing a deeper focus on the catalysts that govern device efficiency. ChemEng262 covers polymers being considered for fuel cell applications, among others. Bioenergy is discussed in greater detail in ChemEng456.For each graduate course you successfully complete, you will earn 3 units of graduate credit. All courses are available online via streaming video during the quarter offered, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Upon successful completion of four courses, you will be awarded a graduate certificate in Molecular Engineering of Energy Technologies.
