The Master of Engineering - Energy Engineering (ME EnE) is a practical graduate degree that focuses on the built environment and the energy it consumes. This program blends theory with application, aligning skills with industry needs in the 21st century.
Available exclusively online, the ME EnE program can be completed entirely via distance. For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ME EnE is targeted toward working engineers and technical professionals seeking to enter the field of energy engineering. Graduates from this program will be taught to view buildings as machines. Only by understanding how the various systems operate at the fundamental level can full clarity of strategy exist - for this reason, the foundation of the curriculum is systems....how each works, how it behaves, the fundamentals behind it.
Applications now being accepted for Fall 14
As an engineering function, findings will flow from knowing why things behave as they do to how to leverage the laws of nature to advantage. As an applied science function, recommendations will be specific, practical, detailed, and will be escorted by numbers that state savings and cost with good certainty.
Topics include HVAC design, automatic controls, energy systems and management, energy usage, and alternative energy systems. Students complete the program by applying energy engineering to a real-world capstone project.
The minimum requirements for regular admission into the Master of Engineering - Energy Engineering are as follows:
A student who lacks one or more of the above courses may be admitted on a provisional basis, but will normally be required to satisfy the requirements after admission.
Application Information: How to Apply
The ME EnE program consists of 30 semester hours of coursework:
Capstone Project - Students are required to complete a Capstone course to demonstrate mastery of the overall program content. Project topics are decided between the student and the course instructor and will normally reflect a real-world industry or community need and interest.
Once accepted, a student will be required to complete a Plan of Study. The Plan of Study must be coordinated with and approved by the Program Director. Students should ensure an initial Plan of Study is accomplished prior to program start. The Plan will also record the transfer of any credit applied towards the program; this transfer of credit must occur prior to the semester in which the student will graduate.
Course work must be completed with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better, and all course work applied to the program (including any transfer credit) must have been completed no earlier than 6 years prior to degree completion. Up to 9 semester hours of graduate work may be transferred from an accredited graduate program, provided course work has not been used towards any other degree, the grade earned for the course is B or better, and the course content has been approved by the Program Director.
