The Master of Science (MS) in Energy at UWM addresses issues related to the efficient generation, transfer, conversion and use of thermal/electrical energy.
Students will focus on solving problems related to the design of future power devices and systems and improving systems that deliver or consume electrical energy in a reliable and economical manner. Students will also need to consider various approaches to reducing environmental impacts such as planning for renewable energy sources.
How UW-Milwaukee Engineers are Changing the World: ENERGY
UW-Milwaukee College of Engineering & Applied Science researchers are collaborating with industry, government and academic partners to find new ways to improve access to energy, increase energy storage and advance the viability of renewable energy sources.
What to Expect
