Energy SHSM Sector

Students enrolled in the SHSM–Energy will be involved in today’s rapid and exciting changes in green energy technologies. They will have the opportunity to solve some of the most pressing issues facing modern societies, while having good prospects for a varied career in a dynamic sector. Where local circumstances allow, boards may elect to offer one or more variants of the SHSM in a given sector, each with a particular area of focus. This SHSM may be designed to have a particular focus – for example, on power generation and distribution, renewable and alternative energy, or energy efficiency. This focus is achieved through the selection of the four major credits in the bundle.
