Masters Programs in Energy

Compare 67 Masters Programs in Energy

A master's program is most often a continuation of bachelor's studies. The degrees obtained through these programs tend to take anywhere from two to four years to obtain.

What is a Master in Energy Studies? This is most often an interdisciplinary program drawing coursework from the business, public policy, earth sciences and ecology departments of a university. The aim of many energy studies programs is to equip graduates with a level of understanding necessary to make and inform executive decisions about the use of energy resources. Common courses include studies of climate change, energy financial markets, energy transportation and environmental science topics.

One of the benefits of taking a master's degree is often the increased credibility such a document affords during a job search process. The qualities this degree represents to employers, such as commitment and mental focus, may also be useful in all aspects of a graduate’s life.

Part of the research process into degree options must include an investigation of cost. Each program is different, so make sure to check with the relevant institutional body before applying.

A Master in Energy Studies is often a necessary step for those who wish to pursue a career in developing energy policies. An example of a professional position in this discipline is energy policy analyst. These individuals might work directly for governments or private companies, or they might find a position at an independent consultation or analysis firm. Such a position would likely require in-depth research and data analysis, along with the ability to effectively communicate summary materials to executives and advisory boards. Graduates of an energy studies master’s program may quality for upper-level positions requiring experts in the field.

Study Master in Renewable Energy in UAG

Program Objective

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....

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.... [-]
