Energy Systems, Energy Conservation, and Buildings Track (M.ENG.)

Illinois Tech’s Master of Engineering in Energy Systems, Energy Conservation, and Buildings Track prepares students to meet the challenges of generating, storing, and converting energy. With our university’s microgrid energy-distribution system, the first energy-distribution system of its kind in the country, Microgrid Design and Operations is one of the unique courses offered in the energy conservation and buildings specialty track within this degree program.

Two additional specialty tracks—energy generation and sustainability, and energy transmission and markets—are also taught by faculty who have set the bar in energy systems and will empower students to become the next energy pioneers.
 

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.

Program Overview
