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.
Programs focused on sustainable energy provide students with knowledge surrounding alternative, more environmentally friendly forms of energy. Some common topics may include renewable energy transportation systems, thermodynamics, wind energy, nuclear engineering, solar thermal energy applications and energy systems management.

Buildings with low energy use are a social and economic imperative for India and other tropical regions that will see the largest growth in the next two decades. Energy use largely determines the environmental footprint of a building over its lifespan. Research, policy, and practice are making building energy performance an area of intellectual and professional growth. Increasingly, a new kind of professional is needed in the building design or operations team to help save energy.
