EUCLID’s Online Master in Energy Studies

EUCLID’s online master in Energy Studies is closely related to the EUCLID’s MBA program in the same field. The difference is that the MBA program offers a strong MBA core + energy courses, whereas the MSc focuses exclusively and more deeply on energy technologies, issues and policies.

EUCLID’s MBA in Energy Studies offers a strong MBA core capped with high-level courses covering oil and gas, renewable energy, energy business issues, etc. Graduate can expect to complete the program transformed and enhanced in their ability to make a difference in the global energy business.

This program exists in two variants: MSc in Energy Studies and MSc in Renewable Energy Studies. The online master in Renewable Energy is listed in the IRENA database. (Note: IRENA is the UN-affiliated intergovernmental organization dedicated to renewable energy policy, but it does not have a university charter. This program relies heavily on publications and papers publishers by IRENA. EUCLID’s headquarters state, The Gambia, is a full Member State of IRENA).


Academic Presentation

Energy is a major cause of concern for government agencies as well as for economic actors globally. In the wake of the Fukushima disaster, the future of nuclear energy is in question, but what can replace it? Solar, wind, thorium or some yet to be discovered technology? Oil itself – the miraculous energy source of the late 20th century, is widely believed to be peaking, and yet output is at an all-time high and prices still very low. What is the outlook for the next 20 years and what are the implications for private and public organizations alike?

These are some of the critical topics covered in EUCLID’s unique online Master in Energy Studies – unique because offered by an international intergovernmental organization committed to sustainable development, and unique for being delivered completely is distance / online format. The EUCLID online master in energy studies is also unique for blending science and technology with economics and finance to offer a comprehensive coverage of this broad topic.

EUCLID + IOSD = Sustainable Development in Practice

What’s the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage — so we can have power on tap even when the sun’s not out and the wind’s not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store renewable energy.
