Electricity Markets (M.A.S.)

Illinois Tech’s Master of Electricity Markets combines courses from graduate programs in electrical engineering and finance to address the changing needs of the electric power industry. Electricity is traded as a commodity in financial markets, which affects the way electric power grids are controlled and operated, and restructuring of electricity delivery brings major changes to the electric power industry,

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Illinois Tech's Stuart School of Business have teamed up to offer graduate-level coursework in electricity suitable for electric power engineers, preparing students to understand both the technical and business side of such changes.

Students courses include power system planning, financial planning, and elements of sustainable energy.
 

Please note that some programs designated as online require in-person coursework such as lab, classroom participation, or a thesis. As such, all courses will be offered fully online for the fall 2020 semester, however, some courses in subsequent semesters may require in-person attendance.
