With options for options for both undergraduate minors and graduate degrees and certificates, the energy engineering programs at the University of Massachusetts Lowell are designed to prepare students to perform state-of-the-art work on energy systems. 

Undergraduate Programs

  • Energy Engineering Minor
    The procurement of sustainable energy is one of the major challenges facing humanity in the twenty-first century. The Energy Engineering minor allows students attain a greater understanding of the role of energy in human society, establishing the basis for advanced studies and for addressing our most pressing energy challenges. This minor is offered for undergraduate degree programs and is particularly well suited to technical majors such as Mechanical Engineering and Physics. 

Graduate Programs

  • Master of Science Degree Program in Energy Engineering - Nuclear Energy & Renewable Energy Options Available
    The programs are designed to achieve a balance between hands-on experience and theory. Energy engineering draws students from all branches of engineering, mathematics, physics and chemistry.
  • Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Engineering - On Campus or Online
    This 12 credit certificate provides engineers and scientists with a rigorous but practical grounding in the fundamentals of renewable energy systems for design, research, development and manufacture.
  • Graduate Certificate in Wind Energy Engineering
    This certificate is open to applicants with a BS in Mechanical Engineering or a related field, such as Materials Science or Physics, who have an interest in modern wind turbines, including their aerodynamics, what materials go into their construction, and how they are integrated into our electrical system. 
  • Doctoral Degree Programs in Energy Engineering - Nuclear Energy & Renewable Energy Options Available
    The objective of UMass Lowell's doctoral program in energy engineering is to prepare engineers for leadership positions in industry, academia and government to provide society with sustainable energy systems
