What Graduates Have to Say
“During my senior year of undergrad I knew I was interested in the energy industry. I found the Masters of Energy Engineering (MEE) program and liked that I could work while I took classes. I started the MEE program the same time I started a new job at The Shaw Group. I believe my enrollment in the MEE program was definitely a factor in getting the job. Shaw was very interested in the program and currently has one employee enrolled with another one starting class soon.
I thought it was convenient taking classes and working. Interestingly, everything I was learning in class mirrored what I was doing at work.”

"I was interested in renewable and emerging energy and thought the Master of Energy Engineering (MEE) program was a great opportunity to be more involved in the energy field and investigate different technologies. The name Master of Energy Engineering accurately defines the program – it is more technical, more focused and creates more job opportunities. My job is quite challenging and having a MEE degree has helped me to think more practically than theoretically."

“The Master of Energy Engineering (MEE) is a gateway into the energy field. The instructors, having worked in the energy field, are industry experts and provide unparalleled opportunities for students. The way the MEE program is structured, with evening classes in a great location, allowed me to continue working while fully engaged in the program. The classes are small, making it easy to build long-lasting relationships with my peers. I selected this program because I was looking for a career that had positive employment prospects, interesting work, and also complemented undergrad degree. Ultimately, it was integral to landing my current job, and energy engineering is a great field to go into.”
