A two-year graduate program with a focus on topics related to sustainable energy and the impact urbanization, transportation and manufacturing have on energy sustainability.
The College of Science and Engineering’s master’s degree in sustainable energy provides students with extensive knowledge in topics related to sustainable energy and the impact urbanization, transportation and manufacturing have on energy sustainability. The program also looks at the implications and drivers of sustainable policymaking on society, the economy and the environment. A key component of the degrees is original, guided research in energy science and technologies that support sustainable development. The multidisciplinary approach to the curricula allows for engagement in cross-disciplinary science and builds fundamental knowledge that evolves with the developments within the energy field, equipping graduates with the tools needed to pursue a wide variety of career paths.
The master’s program can be customized to focus on different aspects of sustainable energy such as renewable energy systems, conventional energy systems, energy and mobility, energy and urbanization, and energy and environment.
Through the program, students focus on a core set of skills that are required to build a successful career in science, engineering, and technology-related areas, including ethics, technical writing, research methods, data analytics, and advanced computing methods.
