Princeton University Energy ASSOCIATION


Princeton University Energy ASSOCIATION


Princeton University Energy Association (PUEA) is the only student group on campus dedicated to exploring the energy field from every approach imaginable.

Run entirely by undergraduate students from both STEM and humanities/social sciences, we bring exciting opportunities every week for students on campus to meet and learn from energy experts, executives, and scholars, and participate in energy-related tours, conferences, and community service. Our weekly newsletter, the Power Surge, provides to over 500 students a rundown of the week's energy and environment-related on-campus events, career opportunities, and global news.

PUEA is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization welcoming of all views and backgrounds.
PUEA is a student group officially registered under the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students (ODUS)
