Graduate Study. The Energy Graduate Group offers the M.S. (Plan 1—Thesis, and Plan II—Exam) and Ph.D. degrees in two tracks of study: Energy Science & Technology, and Energy Policy & Management. The program is designed to meet the world’s growing needs for highly qualified, thoughtful and dedicated leaders in sustainable energy systems. Both tracks are aimed at a wide range of students, though Energy Science and technology students are expected to come from disciplinary backgrounds in engineering or the physical sciences, while Energy Management and Policy students are expected to come from a wider range of disciplines interested in economic, policy, business and social aspects of energy systems.

Graduate Advisors. Adam Moule (Energy Science & Technology), Katrina Jessoe (Energy Policy & Management), Julia Fan (Admissions)
