The Master of Science in Energy at Texas A&M University is designed to introduce students and professionals to the multiple interdisciplinary facets of energy ranging from an overview of energy technologies (fossil-based, renewable, and non-fossil based) to multi-scale energy systems engineering methods, to energy economics, law, security, policy, and societal impact. The structure of the degree is based on (a) non-overlapping modules, (b) distinguished seminar series, and (c) research thesis (thesis track only). The degree can be completed face-to-face in College Station, Texas or fully online via distance learning without any residency requirement.
The aims of the Master of Science in Energy degree program are:
- Educate students/professionals with the broad spectrum of important energy issues, energy technologies based on fossil and non-fossil resources, sustainable energy technologies, and their interactions with energy economics, entrepreneurship, law, and policy.
- Enhance the quantitative skills and knowledge of students/professionals for the analysis, simulation, and optimization of energy systems, and prepare them for practical applications.
- Develop and enhance students’ skills for independent research in energy.
- Educate and train the new generation of “energy experts” to leading and impactful careers in the multi-faceted energy industry, the energy business domain, the law sector, the public policy sector, and the government.
- Integrate and synergize educational efforts in energy from all parts of Texas A&M University that include (a) the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences; (b) the College of Engineering, (c) the College of Geosciences; (d) the College of Sciences; (e) the Bush School of Government and Public Policy; (f) the Mays Business School; (g) the College of Liberal Arts; and (h) the School of Law.
