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.
From indigenous civilizations to modern day empires, North America has plenty of hands-on educational opportunities to offer scholars. Filled with a range of distinct cultures, students can educate themselves in well-rounded way.

The MSc in Renewable Energy offered the UAG is a response to this need of society, the environment and the market, when the development of alternative energies, rational use of energy and the consequences of climate change become increasingly important. [+]
Renewable energy sources are a reality in modern Mexico. In photovoltaic technology there is a greater than 20 MW generating capacity and only in 2011, the installed capacity was doubled in our country. However, our nation has potential to grow in all renewable energy technologies, particularly in solar thermal and the use of hydrogen and biomass.
The accelerated penetration of renewable energy technology represents an opportunity for job creation, but also a challenge in terms of the formation of human capital. In this regard, the country needs specialists in both the efficient use of existing sources, as in the design, implementation, operation, monitoring and maintenance of alternative technologies....
