Fast Track to Energy Leadership

The Texas A&M Energy Institute’s Master of Science in Energy (MSE), Certificate in Energy, and Certificate in Energy Technology, Law and Policy are designed to create the next generation of leaders in energy, and these programs target both students and professionals who want to be educated on the high-impact and interdisciplinary facets of the energy research landscape through quantitative analytical methods and multi-scale systems based approaches.

The degree program and the certificates introduce students and professionals to the multiple interdisciplinary facets of energy ranging from an overview of energy technologies (fossil-based, renewable, and non-fossil based) to multi-scale energy systems engineering methods, to energy economics, law, security, policy, and societal impact.


Truly Interdisciplinary Impact

Seminars and lectures will be delivered by distinguished energy experts from academia, industry, and government. Faculty from the:

  • Bush School of Government and Public Service
  • College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
  • School of Architecture
  • College Arts and Sciences
  • College of Engineering
  • Mays Business School
  • School of Law

are participating in the Master of Science in Energy (MSE), Certificate in Energy, and Certificate in Energy Technology, Law and Policy programs. Research thesis topics will be provided and supervised by faculty members affiliated with the Texas A&M Energy Institute.

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).
