Carnegie Mellon University

Master's Degrees

The College of Engineering's EST&P program offers three professional master's degrees in energy: 

  • Energy Science, Technology and Policy is a 96-unit degree that is completed in two semesters of full-time study
  • Energy Science, Technology and Policy- Applied Studies is a 120-unit degree that includes 24-units of project and is completed in three semesters of full-time study
  • Energy Science, Technology and Policy- Applied Studies and Integrated Study in Computer Science is a 168-unit degree that includes 24-units of project, 60-units in Computer Science, and is completed in four semesters of full-time study

The EST&P program's interdisciplinary degrees can be customized to align with your personal and professional goals. The four energy core (mini)-courses are the foundation of the EST&P program. Within your chosen disciplinary concentration you select among pre-approved energy courses offered by one of the six College of Engineering departments that are partners with the EST&P program. Breadth electives shape your degree by taking relevant graduate classes in the College of Engineering and, as appropriate, from other CMU colleges and degree programs. Approved project work applies your knowledge to specific energy related problems in project-intensive courses or in research programs across campus. Integrated studies in computer science allows you to build off of your prior experience in programming and implement and practice advanced computational-based methods applied to engineering problems in the energy sector.
