Master of Science in Energy Management (MSEM)

Program Overview

The recent world wide sky rocketing oil prices have highlighted the need for the better understanding of the dynamics of energy sector. The energy is a key necessity of life and driver of economic growth. The world today is facing increased demand for energy resources whereas the known commercial energy resources are becoming scarce. The scarcity is particularly severe in some non-oil producing developing regions, whereas the residential and service sectors demands are growing quickly while the industrial sector lags behind. Our region is also witnessing a rapid growth in the demand for energy because of several factors such as increase in use of consumer goods and services, per capita income and the growth in population. In order to attain and sustain an enviable economic growth rate and reduce poverty, today’s managers have to be well versed with the energy sector so as to be able to chalk out long term energy strategies, plan and implement projects for harnessing energy resources best suited to their situation.

The technology to harness energy resources is taught at various engineering schools. There are, however, only a very few institutions and “Think tanks” in the world that focus on Energy Management and Energy Strategies at the national and global levels.
