Preparing leaders for a sustainable energy future

Energy systems are rapidly transforming. As a result, jobs in the renewable energy sector are among the fastest growing in the U.S. The Master’s in Energy Systems Management equips students for positions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors promoting a sustainable, low carbon future with alternatives like solar and wind power.

Our curriculum was designed by industry experts to give students a complete understanding of the transition to a low carbon economy. Classes are taught by full time faculty and industry experts with experiential knowledge in the energy sector. We offer personalized attention with small class sizes, and offer opportunities for research, internships, and professional engagement.
