About us

The Energy Club’s goal is to create a community for graduate students interested in energy at UCSD. We are an inclusive group that aims to foster connections across different departments from policy to engineering. Our events promote a diverse range of interests through meetings with companies in industry, seminars on graduate student research, discussions about current events and fun social events. They are open to the entire UCSD graduate community and many have been supported by the Jacobs Graduate Student Council and the Graduate Student Association.
