Chief energy officer to testify before Congress
UH is headed to Washington, D.C.
Chief Energy Officer Ramanan Krishnamoorti will testify before Congress on Thursday in a hearing about the 21st century workforce.
Krishnamoorti will introduce a new UH training program for the energy industry that includes three undergraduate certificate programs: advanced safety technology, advanced petroleum technology and advanced process technology.
If students complete two of the certificate programs, they only need one more year to earn a bachelor’s in Organizational Leadership and Supervision. Each certificate takes about five months to complete, with students taking two courses at a time.
“For the energy industry, you need to have nimble solutions,” Krishnamoorti said in a press release. “You need to offer what the industry and the workforce need. Stackable certificates is an innovative way to provide the critical skills the energy industry needs and to allow energy employees to advance their careers, instead of just their jobs.”
