As sustainability issues move to the forefront of businesses and governments worldwide, there’s a growing need for energy systems professionals—in particular, those with the expertise to excel at the intersection of technical principles, business strategies, and public planning.

The interdisciplinary Master of Science in Energy Systems from Northeastern University helps you gain the real-world experience needed to succeed in this fast growing field.

With the masters in Energy Systems, you’ll have the unique opportunity to:

  • Choose to study on-site at our Boston campus or anywhere in the world with our 100% online format.
  • Participate in a full- or part-time learning environment, based on your needs.
  • Learn directly from business and energy experts, many of whom have successfully implemented energy systems, devices, and policies.
  • Develop a solid business and engineering foundation, while accessing a range of specialized electives tailored to your career interests. Options of related renewable energy courses include: solar thermal engineering, gas turbine combustion, general thermodynamics, combustion, and air pollution.
  • Build your resumé and gain valuable hands-on experience through our signature co-op program.

Move into this high-growth field, from a range of non-engineering backgrounds.

If you have strong quantitative and problem solving skills, but do not necessarily have an educational or professional background in the energy systems, our Master of Science in Energy Systems ALIGN program may be an option. It offers students from a wide variety of quantitative and STEM backgrounds the opportunity to gain the knowledge and practical experience necessary to enter this dynamic field.

About Northeastern
Northeastern University is grounded in an innovative idea — that education is about is engaging with the world to solve problems and lead change.

This idea is something we put in motion on a daily basis. We’ve established working relationships in Boston, in hundreds of communities in the United States and in more than 90 countries around the world, including with 3,000+ organizations in business and finance, healthcare and law, education and research, and community service and government.
  • These highly specialized partnerships are the backbone of an education grounded in experiential learning.
  • Experiential learning transforms “global” and “innovative” from concepts to actions, makes our students and our degree programs more interactive, and invigorates an approach to research that translates knowledge into solutions.
  • In today’s rapidly changing economic landscape, Northeastern offers flexible, challenging degree programs that connect students with emerging fields, make them problem solvers in the global economy, and prepare them for a lifetime of learning — in Boston, Charlotte, Seattle, Silicon Valley and beyond.
