Fuel cell engineers work in laboratories, manufacturing plants and universities on the design and development of new fuel cell devices and technologies. Fuel cells generate electricity through a reaction between fuels and oxidants which produces very few greenhouse gas emissions, and can be used to supplement renewable energy sources in anything from portable electronics to passenger vehicles.
As a fuel cell engineer, you would be involved in:
Testing all components of the fuel cell to improve its performance;
Investigating how new and renewable fuels can be used in fuel cells.
Your work would make clean sources of energy more efficient and more reliable.
