Abstract

In 2012, the Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture launched a bachelor degree in Business Engineering with specialization in Sustainable Energy Systems (BE SES). The program is designed to supply well-trained graduates to meet the demand for business engineers in growing energy-related fields. The goal of our project was to compare the BE SES curriculum at the Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture to similar programs at other universities around the world, and evaluate student and faculty satisfaction, employer expectations, and marketing strategies. We found that the program is very well situated to meet the demands of students and potential employers, but we make several recommendations to ensure continued success of the program in the future.
