The Master of Science degree program in Energy Systems integrates the technology side of energy systems development with the financial planning needed to effectively implement them. The goal of the MSES is to create a high-level signature, interdisciplinary graduate program for the engineer or technical business major, who is pursuing an industrial or public planning based career.
The program curriculum is firmly rooted in energy technology and includes exposure to the interface with business and financial decision processes. Full-time students at our Boston campus will have exposure to business educators, practicing professionals, and will have the opportunity to participate in a six month co-op experience. Practicing professionals with experience at this interface who have successfully implemented energy systems or devices and policies will be actively involved in the program as adjunct professors and invited speakers. The curriculum is flexibly designed with a set of six core courses in engineering knowledge and finance, and four electives that can be taken from any department within the College of Engineering*. Through this curriculum and interaction with practitioners, the students will be prepared to effectively integrate energy system development over a broad spectrum of technologies with the financial requirements to successfully implement them and to compete in the global energy market.
Graduates of the program will be involved in the decision making or policy planning that will deliver sustainable, energy efficient systems to the global market. They will have the basic training necessary to lead efforts within companies to plan and implement new energy generation investments, realize energy efficiency improvements specifically at the system level, and participate in energy and environmental markets such as, power purchase agreements, energy management monitoring and cap-and-trade systems.
The Master of Science in Energy Systems program is available at our Boston campus as well as our satellite campuses in Charlotte and Seattle.The M.S. programs' student learning outcome is
- A graduate-level understanding of basic disciplinary concepts.
