About

Through a 10-month long program, featuring thesis and non-thesis tracks, the Master of Science in Energy at Texas A&M University aims to expose students and professionals to  important energy challenges and opportunities, and advances in theory, methods, technologies, and applications delivered by energy leaders from academia, industry, and government.

Overview

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.
