Modern Energy Production and Sustainable Use (MS)
The master of science in modern energy production and sustainable use prepares students with the technical knowledge and interdisciplinary problem-solving skills needed to engage complex energy systems.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy shares that as new energy new technologies are developed and introduced for commercial use, they will create new jobs for American workers strengthening U.S. energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality. These workers needed to be trained in a variety of transdisciplinary areas from renewable energy generation and storage, energy-saving materials and manufacturing, and sustainable transportation.
The School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy offers the master of science in modern energy production and sustainable use and utilizes its unique transdisciplinary expertise to provide graduate student training in fundamental science and engineering principles, and thereby facilitate the generation of human capital of those who can address grand challenges associated with future energy production and storage, and in sustainable use.
Here are a few courses we offer:
- Renewable Energy: Mechanical System
- Electrochemistry Energy Storage and Conversion
- Biomass Energy Conversion Technology
- Wind Energy
- Nanomaterials in Energy Production and Storage
- Nuclear Power Engineering
