Energy Studies

A Master in Energy is an advanced degree that allows science and engineering students to continue their education with a focus on energy. Specialized programs provide study in specific areas, such as nuclear, solar or sustainable power sources.

 

What is a Master in Energy? A master’s program in energy focuses on ways of meeting the world’s ever-increasing demand for power. Studies can center on a specific resource or provide preparation for research and development of new options. The nuclear field offers courses in nuclear physics, thermodynamics, material sciences and nuclear plant design. Solar studies focus on renewable sources with courses in solar heating, electricity and management. A master of sustainable energy prepares the student to apply technologies in improving efficiency and reducing the impact of conventional power usage. There are also programs that integrate environmental, social and governmental considerations in the development and consumption of resources.

 

The benefits of this field are felt on a global scale. The world’s growing demand for power and the effect of energy use on the environment are major considerations for the future. Generations to come could profit from the efforts of today’s experts.

 

The cost of pursuing a master’s in energy will vary according to the location of the school and the program offered. Students should research their options and select the path that best suits their goals and finances.

 

There are several options in energy careers. Jobs in research are available in any specialization. Graduates of nuclear studies are sought for design and construction, waste management, and operation of plants. Solar engineers are required in many branches of the power industry and are also employed to plan and implement systems in the public and private sector. Sustainable resource specialists are needed to aid in the transition towards renewable solutions, both in government and business settings. Universities around the world seek energy graduates for teaching positions.

Building Sustainability (MBA)

TU-Campus EUREF
Campus Full time 3 semesters October 2018 Germany Berlin

The MBA program Building Sustainability – Management Methods for Energy Efficiency will teach students skills, methods and concepts to consider different approaches, to understand them and to align them for reaching sustainable solutions. [+]

Program Background

The concept of the German “Energiewende” – literally, energy transition – has gained international attention. It includes a variety of measures that aim at making Europe’s largest economy free of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. In order to attain this, all areas of energy production and consumption will have to go through a transition process. Besides mobility and industry, buildings are therefore one of the key factors for a successful Energiewende.

Most of all, this implies re-directing from a mainly fossil-fueled energy supply towards renewable energies and a much more energy-efficient use of energy in buildings and urban areas. This is one of the largest and most urgent challenges of current urban development and other social disciplines.... [-]
