Energy Studies

Students who are considering graduate school usually begin with a master’s degree whether they intend to pursue a doctoral degree or not. The master’s degree provides in-depth training in a specific field. The usefulness of this degree lies in the wide range of applications, both professionally and academically. An Master of Science, or MSc, in Energy Studies provides these benefits for students in engineering and similar fields.

What is an MSc in Energy Studies? What does this course of study entail? Students may choose to specialize in a number of different areas. They might choose an Energy Engineering Master’s Program where they learn about the practical aspects of collecting, using, and dividing energy from many different sources. Students may choose a course of study that focuses on nuclear energy or a program that covers energy and resource management.

There are many benefits to studying in the field of energy. As the world’s need for reliable and renewable energy, the demand for skilled professionals is also growing. Graduates should be able to enjoy job security and a great deal of choice when it comes to which part of the field and which part of the world they would like to work. Those graduates with an advanced degree can often enjoy a broader range of choices than other job applicants.

The actual costs of applying for, participating in, and completing an MSC in an energy-related program will vary from one school to another, especially as students cross international borders. For specific information, prospective students should contact individual schools.

Employers in this field are often looking for graduates with some degree of experience in addition to their academic success. With a combination of both, graduates can expect to find jobs with titles such as policy analyst, energy risk management, budget analyst, vehicle energy management engineer, energy management administrator, energy auditor, and energy efficiency communications manager. Employers for these jobs are often looking for those with good interpersonal skills, who are problem solvers, and who have a good understanding of the energy business, whether this is in a regulatory or a market perspective.

MSc Degrees in Energy Studies. Language of instruction: English The most important direction of energy development for in coming years in most of countries of the world this is the one considered to be based on a significant increase in natural gas consumption. Particularly in such countries as Poland, where 90% of electricity and 86% of heat is produced from the combustion of coal, increasing the use of natural gas is the most important economic activity for the next decades. From high-power engineering based on combined cycle gas turbine unit CCGT to the distributed cogeneration systems based on gas engines is the most important direction of development of energy, not only in Europe or Poland but other countries as well. Additionally power based on natural gas can efficiently be supported by renewable energy above all mostly: solar, wind and geothermal. Renewable energy sources are difficult to be used and expensive to operate, but in co-operation with natural gas technology are very, very promising. Lectures, exercises and laboratories will be carry out by the staff associated with the PUT – Laboratory of Gas Technology (LTG) and also internships will be given in modern industry natural gas companies.
