Profile​​s and Experience

GEM students and alumni possess an impressive list of credentials that span all energy sectors and professional levels. The diversity of GEM students and their collective experience enrich the learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom. Team-based assignments are essential components of all GEM courses. During your first eight courses, groups will be pre-assigned by the GEM administration providing you t​he opportunity to work with each member of your cohort. Students will choose their own group members during your last four courses of the program.

GEM’s student experience goes beyond the classroom. Lifelong friendships are created by the multitude of activities students participate in while in the program. During the cohort weekends, students are active after class with a variety of activities such as: organizing dinners with faculty, attending local sporting events such as Denver Nuggets or Colorado Rockies games; planning happy hours and hosting other social events that promote bonding with the entire cohort.

In addition to the cohort weekends, GEM offers other educational opportunities outside of the classroom. These include site tours of wind farms, oil rigs and nuclear power plants. GEM also offers two special topics courses in which students travel to Washington, D.C. and London, England to meet with government officials, private sector companies and non-profit organizations that are both domestic and international energy leaders.
