The Master of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering program goal is to provide graduates for careers in areas of renewable energy engineering including but not limited to solar PV, solar thermal, wind power, wave power, geothermal energy, transportation, energy storage, hydroelectric and traditional energy fields such as power systems, smart grid, energy management, energy auditing, energy systems planning, energy economics, energy policy and development, carbon accounting and reduction, and controls and instrumentation. MSREE graduates will enter renewable energy engineering careers as leaders in design, site analysis, product, application, test, quality control, and sales.
Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve. The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of Oregon Tech’s Master’s of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering program are these:
- MSREE graduates will excel as leaders in the various fields of energy engineering.
- MSREE graduates will demonstrate an ability to apply advanced engineering methods to the solutions of complex energy-related engineering problems.
- MSREE graduates will demonstrate an ability to acquire emerging knowledge and remain current in the dynamic field of renewable energy.
Expected Student Learning Outcomes
The MSREE program builds on the engineering knowledge students gained as undergraduates. The MSREE program outcomes are these:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve energy-related engineering problems
- an ability to communicate effectively
- an ability to independently acquire knowledge of contemporary technical, political, and economic issues related to energy
