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.

Master in Energy Informatics

Energy is the underlying heartbeat of the global economy – a critical factor in the production of nearly all goods and services in the modern world. Clearly, given the critical role of energy, the driving imperatives in any economy are ensuring the security of supply, maintaining competitiveness and overseeing the transition to a low-carbon future.

Key requirements in this respect are the strategic management of supply and improving its overall generation and distribution. Impacting on these challenging goals will be a variety of factors, including advances in renewables, e-mobility and green technologies, to name only a few. Managing this changing environment is no easy task. That will require intelligent IT solutions and therefore well-educated IT experts able to design and/or operate future smart grids, smart city infrastructures and enhanced energy supply systems....

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....

As the main sources of energy oil and gas play a crucial role in every economy and modern civilization in general. The fossil fuel scarcity makes one country dependent on the others, while those with large stocks of natural resources may suffer from negative effects of “Dutch decease”. All together with respect to world economy dynamics, political instability and population growth worry about the prospects of energy security. It means that management in the extracting industry faces new challenges going further than standard risks variations. Managers of oil and gas extracting companies have to take into account social, political, economic, environmental and legal aspects beyond decisions they make.... [-]
