Program Description

Master of Science in Energy (MSE)

Through a 10-month long program, featuring thesis and non-thesis tracks, the Master of Science in Energy aims to expose students and professionals to (a) important energy challenges and opportunities, and (b) advances in theory, methods, technologies, and applications delivered by energy leaders from academia, industry, and government, through a module-based structure and a distinguished seminar series.

Emphasis is placed on creating a new generation of energy educated students and professionals who are broadly educated on all components of energy through quantitative analytical methods and multi-scale systems based approaches.

Track 1

Track 1 requires 16 modules, thesis, and seminars and results in 32 student credit hours. This track includes a research thesis and requires students to be Face-to-Face in College Station, Texas. Students will work in conjunction with faculty members affiliated with the Texas A&M Energy Institute.

For a full listing of modules and courses, visit the Curriculum and Modules page.

Track 2

Track 2 requires 23 modules and seminars, and results in 36.5 student credit hours.

This track is offered to students or professionals Face-to-Face in College Station, Texas or Online via distance learning.

STEM OPT Extension: Not Eligible

The Master of Science in Energy offered by the Texas A&M Energy Institute, and approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, has CIP code: 30.9999.04 Multi/Interdisciplinary Studies, Other. According to the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program, this code is not among the codes on the 2016 STEM designated list. The majority of the courses within the Master of Science in Energy at Texas A&M University are individually designated as STEM courses, but that factor alone is not sufficient to merit a full designation as a STEM program. Therefore, students who graduate with a Master of Science in Energy are not eligible for the Optional Practical Training Extension for STEM Students (STEM OPT).
