Energy Engineering

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Individuals who are dedicated to the environment and enjoy science and technology may be interested in studying energy engineering. This area of study provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to manage energy facilities, extract natural resources properly and develop technologies that lead to sustainable energy sources.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
