Degree Requirements

The Master of Science in Energy Management (MS EM) is a 36 semester credit hours STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) degree program that prepares students for careers in energy companies including oil, gas, renewable energy and electricity, banks and financial institutions that trade energy commodities, energy-focused consulting firms, and major energy consuming corporations. The curriculum provides a practical learning component through projects developed by industry members that 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 the UT Dallas aim to address skill shortages in industries critical to the Texas economy.

To apply for this degree program, an undergraduate degree is required (all majors are considered). Students must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA) in both core courses and in aggregate courses to qualify for the MS degree.

Prerequisites

Students pursuing the Master of Science in Energy Management (MS EM) degree program are required to complete one semester credit hour of ENGY 6102 Professional Development or its equivalent. In addition, knowledge of calculus and statistics are required. Applicants who have not satisfied these requirements may be admitted but will need to satisfy the prerequisites within the first 12 semester credit hours of graduate study, by taking OPRE 6303 Quantitative Foundations of Business and OPRE 6301 Statistics and Data Analysis with grades of "B" or better, as a degree-seeking student. Degree credit is not earned for program prerequisites, however, the grade achieved in prerequisites will count toward the student's grade-point average (GPA).
