Energy Sciences

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.

The energy sciences refer to the study of green technologies such as solar, geothermal, wind and biomass power. Students will often learn about the generation of alternative energy while studying sociology, economics and environmental science.

European University at St. Petersburg
Campus 2 years September 2018 Russia Saint Petersburg

The ENERPO PLUS program was designed on the basis of the one-year ENERPO program to meet the growing interest in these challenges and considers the importance of these issues for both policymakers and the energy business. Its innovative curriculum combines the perspectives of energy politics, security studies, and political economy. In addition to the academic training provided by the ENERPO curriculum, it also includes a practical experience and allows more time for student's research work. ENERPO and ENERPO PLUS are the only English-language MA programs in Russia focusing specifically on Eurasian energy affairs. [+]

Competition and cooperation over the control of Eurasian natural resources will profoundly influence world politics in the 21st century. Crucial issues include the future of the Russo-European oil & gas trade, Russia’s “energy pivot” to Asia, the recent the LNG and shale gas “revolutions”, the recurring geopolitical crises in the post-Soviet space and the Middle East, the great opportunities and the huge profits generated by the energy sector, the use of “energy weapons” and levers, and the pursuit of environmental and economic sustainability, the sanctions regimes on Russia and Iran, and the current falling world price of oil.

STUDY ENERGY IN THE UK

Across The Pond partners with some of the top UK universities for Energy, across a variety of disciplines. The UK has long been a major contributor to the innovation of energy, including oil and gas, renewable energy, and students who study in the UK benefit from intensive learning, opportunities to find placements at major Energy companies, and a concentration on both academic skill and employability.

BENEFITS OF STUDYING ENGINEERING IN THE UK

Shorter courses: Most Master’s programs are only one year long. Students can obtain a degree in a shorter amount of time compared to studying in Latin America. Funding from Latin American countries for these subjects is also available. Focus: UK universities do not require general education courses; students will be focusing on Energy from Day 1! Employment opportunities: Many universities in the UK focus on having staff that are active in their fields, helping to provide an employability perspective and to generate learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Furthermore, many energy courses offer the opportunity to take on a placement, whether as an additional year on their degree or as a short-term opportunity during their degree. Either way, UK engineering students graduate with readiness to work. ... [-]
