Energy Studies

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.

An energy program teaches students about the ways in which the world’s need and demand for power are met. Studies may focus on one particular resource or cover the development of alternatives. Sustainable sources may be explored as well.

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.

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. ... [-]

Graduate Degree in Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management

École Polytechnique
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 France Paris

The Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) Graduate Degree program fosters real-world technical expertise at the intersection between environmental issues and the future of energy. This program combines management experience with first-class engineering and scientific training. [+]

A global consensus on the urgency to enact measures to mitigate climate change has emerged in recent years, culminating in December 2015 with the Paris Agreement at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21). 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, global climate deal to limit to 2°C the rise in global temperatures. The agreement also states its aim of limiting the increase to 1.5°C, which would significantly reduce the risk of climate change for ecosystems and human populations. The future of energy production and particularly renewable energy generation capacities lies at the heart of efforts to reach these new goals.

The transformation in energy production is generally known as the “energy transition.” This shift away from fossil fuels and towards more sustainable alternatives has become not only a political and environmental imperative but also an economic one. The technologies and business models of this changing energy landscape call for increasingly sophisticated expertise.... [-]
