Energy Systems

Northeastern University


The Master of Science, MS, in Energy Systems degree program integrates the technology side of energy systems development with the financial planning needed to effectively implement these new technologies. The goal of the Master’s in Energy Systems is to create a high-level signature, multidisciplinary graduate program for the engineer or technical business major who is pursuing (or would like to pursue) an industrial or public planning based career.

A version of the MS in Energy Systems program is available for students with non-STEM undergraduate degrees (such as business, English, sociology). Named Energy Systems Academic Link (AL), this program pathway is meant to provide students the foundation skills necessary to gain the skills needed to create and implement energy solutions. Students in this program path begin the program by taking two core courses that cover topics across thermal sciences and math along with the general energy systems curriculum.

The program’s mission is to educate students in current and future energy systems technologies, to integrate energy-related technologies with the economics and financial considerations required to implement them, and to develop leadership and decision-making skills to implement energy systems in either the private or public sectors of the global market. The program will expose students to a combination of academic and corporate experience in energy systems.
