SUCCEED Student Program

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting the 2020 SUCCEED student program.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you next year!

About the program

SUCCEED is a 5-day program where CMU Ph.D. students work with underclassman high school students to improve their understanding of energy, the environment, and climate change. By the end of the program you should be able to explain the effect of climate change and its relationship with the energy sector. The program delves into how electricity is generated, demanded, and used throughout the country. Students will learn about some of the grand challenges facing energy engineering fields, how new technology can play a role in mitigating climate change, that all energy options have tradeoffs, and that policy can be used to effect change. The program is designed to open students’ minds to the challenges at this intersection and encourage them to seek careers in climate, energy, or other STEM fields.

This research was made possible through support from the Center for Climate and Energy Decision Making (CEDM). This Center has been created through a cooperative agreement between the National Science Foundation (SES-0949710) and Carnegie Mellon University.
