Energy Degree Programs and Courses
The sorts of people that use our degree days calculator are often interested in studying energy-related disciplines further. As awareness of energy and environmental issues increases, more and more institutions are offering energy-related degree courses. We have researched and compiled this information to act as a guide to the different energy-related degree programs on offer around the world, and the career prospects that a graduate of those programs might expect.
We will probably expand this section of the site over time, so please let us know if there are other courses that you think we should mention. Also, if you run an energy- or education-related website, and you consider this to be a useful resource (we’re not aware of any other such energy-focused lists online), we’d really appreciate it if you mentioned this resource on your website. Many of these courses were pretty hard to find, and we’d like to do our bit to make things easier for potential students of energy-related disciplines.
Energy Management Courses
“Energy management” is a term that has a number of different meanings, but, in broad terms, it is about managing available resources to make the most efficient use of energy. (You can read our article on energy management for more information on the various meanings of the term.) Courses with “energy management” in their names or descriptions often cover broader environmental and economic issues as well the implementation of practical solutions.
As corporations and public-sector organisations are continually facing pressure to reduce their energy consumption, there are lots of opportunities for energy-management graduates.
