Sustainable Energy

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

A Master in Sustainable Energy is an interdisciplinary study of the methods the world must employ in order to fulfill its energy needs. The biggest challenge is how to meet these requirements through the implementation of new law and policy and despite continued, rapid, globalization.

Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

Masters in Sustainable Energy in Europe 2017. Adopting an education vision on universal level and pioneering valuable research in a variety of disciplines such as sustainability issues - one of the most strategic topics among today’s global agenda - IUE has started energy-related interdisciplinary research and studies within the year of 2011. During the same year “Sustainable Energy Division” is founded compatible with the basic institutional values of participation, innovation, social responsibility and perfectionism. The division mainly investigates the developments in the field of energy markets and policies from the viewpoint of social sciences discipline covering environmental, social, political, legal and economic aspects. Different lines of researches allow participants to interact from a multi-disciplinary manner by identifying the key research areas of: - Energy Security - Energy and Environmental Policy Analysis - Energy Supply Modelling - Econometric Analysis and Quantitative Methods - Energy and Environment Law - Energy Logistics - Energy Technologies Management - Financial Issues Following to the establishment of the “Sustainable Energy Division” branch under the Graduate School of Social Sciences, “M.A. in Sustainable Energy” Program has begun its education in 2012. The program is structured under two following options: “with thesis” and “without thesis”, with a total year of education of 4 semesters and 3 semesters, respectively. The purpose of M.A. in Sustainable Energy is to train the participants for the energy sector, concerning the problems and solutions encountered in the field of sustainable energy development with local, regional and global perspectives. Participants from different disciplines, backgrounds and degrees are directed towards more specific areas through various core and elective courses. Adopting an inter-disciplinary approach, the program emphasizes the social science point of view of the sustainable energy discipline rather than relying only on the technical perspective.
