Fuel cell engineer

Fuel cell engineer

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.
