In keeping with a long-standing TU tradition, of ringing the Kendall Bell upon the completion of their last final of their undergraduate career, the TU Energy Management program has instituted a tradition of its own. All Energy Management graduates will sign the “Energy Management Book of Graduates” signifying their majoring in Energy Management. They will then have their pictures made in front of the Kendall Bell.

The TU Energy Management program was established in September of 2006, and admitted it’s first class of students in the Fall semester of 2007. The program currently has approximately 85 students.
