The H2E3 Project

Hydrogen Energy in Engineering Education (H2E3) is a project of the Schatz Energy Research Center at Humboldt State University. It was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy from 2008-2011. The mission of H2E3 is to develop, test, distribute, and promote curriculum and laboratory equipment for teaching university engineering students about hydrogen and fuel cell technologies through hands-on laboratory activities, multi-media curriculum, and internships.

We created the project to address a lack of hands-on hydrogen and fuel cell learning opportunities for undergraduate engineering students. During the period of DOE support, we pursued adoption of the curriculum at California’s public California State University and University of California campuses. Our ultimate aim is national dissemination of H2E3.

The DOE-funded work is now complete. We offer custom-built hydrogen teaching tools based on those developed for the H2E3 project, for sale to new users in colleges and universities. If you are interested in using the H2E3 curriculum in your engineering or science course, please contact us to ask for a price quote.
