Rutgers School of Engineering is pleased to announce the new interdisciplinary Energy Systems Engineering program of Rutgers University. It allows students to explore the many facets of this dynamic and expanding field by combining coursework across many departments with hands-on learning.


The Power of a Master’s Degree in Energy Systems from Rutgers School of Engineering

The Energy Systems Engineering program of Rutgers University promotes interdisciplinary collaboration by integrating technology and science with business, IT, public policy, and regulatory study to provide students with the building blocks needed to succeed in the energy field. By incorporating theory and applied engineering training this collaborative program is resourced through six School of Engineering departments and the Graduate School-New Brunswick, along with the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the Rutgers Business School. Students are trained to solve real-life engineering problems in energy-related fields.

Learning Beyond the Classroom

Research Opportunities are many in R&D settings like the Energy Lab, a state-of-the-art energy simulation lab that includes a mini smart grid where students can monitor live energy consumption in the more than 1000 buildings on Rutgers campuses. The Center for Energy, Economic and Environmental Policy (CEEEP), the Rutgers Energy Institute, the Rutgers EcoComplex, a clean energy and environmental research and business incubation center, and The Laboratory for Energy Smart Systems (LESS), a multidisciplinary research center that brings together public agencies, private industry, and communities to build sustainable and resilient energy solutions, are among the centers where students conduct research.

Hands-on Learning is a key component of this program. Students will complete a related internship or independent hands-on project as part of their training.

  • Repatriation, if something happens to you or your family
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid
