The Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Development Program is an interdisciplinary program for professional individuals seeking a broad-based education in energy and sustainable development.
Instruction is offered by members of the Faculties of Environmental Design, Law, the Schulich School of Engineering and the Haskayne School of Business of the University of Calgary and from the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (for the courses offered in Quito, Ecuador).
The Program is for high potential professionals who have demonstrated the ability to produce results, communicate effectively, and who have an interest in sustainable development. They will have an undergraduate degree from an internationally recognized university in any discipline (engineering, management, law, science, architecture, etc.) and preferably three years of work experience. Students enter with a broad range of educational and experience backgrounds, many from energy and environment organizations, including government agencies.
The objective of the Program is to provide students with a background in energy and environmental management such that they will be able to ensure sustainable energy development and minimize the impact of development on the environment. Opportunities exist to engage in activities, such as field trips to the oil sands and other energy-related industrial operations, visits to water and wastewater treatment plants, seminars by industry experts, etc. In addition, students can also benefit by undertaking individual or group projects on topics that are supported by industry.
