Master of Science in Energy Management
The Master of Science in Energy Management degree program prepares students for careers in oil, gas, renewable energy, and electricity companies, banks and financial institutions that trade energy commodities, energy-focused consulting firms and major energy consuming corporations.
The curriculum includes a significant number of experiential learning opportunities. Courses incorporate a variety of techniques to teach students how to value energy companies and projects, develop operating strategies, negotiate contracts and manage energy-specific risks.
The development of the program was motivated by a high concentration of energy companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and UT Dallas efforts to address skill shortages in industries critical to the Texas economy.
