Master's in Sustainable Energy
The HBKU Sustainable Energy master’s and Ph.D. programs provide students with extensive knowledge in topics related to sustainable energy and the impact urbanization, transportation and manufacturing have on energy sustainability. The programs also looks at the implications and drivers of sustainable policymaking on society, the economy and the environment.
A key component for both degrees is original, guided research in energy science and technologies that support sustainable development.
The multidisciplinary approach to the curricula allows for engagement in cross-disciplinary science and builds fundamental knowledge that evolves with the developments within the energy field, equipping graduates with the tools needed to pursue a wide variety of career.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree relevant to this program, which typically includes science and engineering. Additionally, backgrounds in economic, business, policy, and social sciences will be considered. Applicants should demonstrate strong evidence supporting the prospect that they will become successful researchers and professionals. These include excellent performance in relevant coursework, past research results if any, and strong recommendation letters. Applicants with prior research experience are preferred.
Applicants are required to take the IELTS or TOEFL exam in order to demonstrate their proficiency in English. Applicants who are fluent in English may be exempt from this requirement.
While not required for the master’s programs the GRE exam is recommended and will strengthen an applicant’s submission. Applicants coming from an economics, policy and other social science background may submit results of the GMAT exam as an alternative to the GRE.
