BERC Engineering (BERC-E)

The mission of BERC-E is to form a close-knit group of graduate students from engineering and science departments to discuss a variety of energy topics over pizza and beer. We cover a wide range of topics, including but not limited to solar energy, batteries, life-cycle analysis, combustion, and energy efficiency. Our meetings are an informal way to meet other students from the science and engineering side of campus interested in energy and to form collaborations or get advice on research.
