Masters Programs in Energy

Compare 59 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.

Energy studies programs vary in their focus, so pay attention to the details of the course structure. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

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. Finding solutions to such a complex challenge means that a multitude of actors from business, society, and public administration take part in the process and influence it with their differing and often conflicting interests. Resulting from this is the need for skilled workers who both understand all stakeholders and are able to work with them. Building Sustainability Strategic concepts for communication and cooperation in large-scale projects are crucial for their success. Whereas, “simply” building a house has become a manageable task, things become much more complicated when considering the urban environment and wider interests such as energy efficiency. The Master program, Building Sustainability focuses therefore, not only on technical and economic perspectives, but also aims at imparting relevant knowledge from other disciplines. This means that the scope of the program is... [-]
