MSE in Energy Systems and Sustainability Engineering

About the Program

The ECE Department offers a 30 credit hour graduate-level curriculum Energy Systems and Sustainability Engineering (ESSE). The MSE-ESSE program is designed to provide systems-based knowledge in energy systems and sustainability through courses dealing with sustainable energy sources, energy generation, energy storage, energy and environmental policies, and distributed power systems. 

The program may be completed entirely on campus, entirely online, or through a combination of on-campus and online courses. On-campus courses will be offered in the late afternoon and evening hours to enable students to earn their master's degree through part-time study.
