M.S. Renewable Energy Engineering

About the Program

What is the Master of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering?

The Master of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering (MSREE) program is offered at Oregon Tech Wilsonville Campus. The MSREE program accommodates both full-time students and working professionals. The MSREE program is designed to prepare graduates to be energy engineering professionals who have advanced knowledge and skills that enable them to assume a broad range of technical leadership roles.

For more information, view the MSREE Summary.

What kind of courses are in the MSREE program?

The MSREE curriculum is built upon core tracks in advanced energy systems engineering. These courses provide the foundation for three required specialized course sequences in renewable energy technologies and nine credits of thesis or graduate R&D project work.

For more information, consult the MSREE Course Descriptions.

How can I apply to the MSREE program?

MSREE Application for applicants with a BS in an engineering or related field.

Concurrent Degree application for applicants currently enrolled in the BSREE or BSEE programs at Oregon Tech.

Applications materials sent directly by the applicant may be emailed to oit@oit.edu, or mailed. Transcripts, transcript evaluations, and test scores must be mailed from the originating agency (e.g., official transcripts must be mailed from the relevant university).

Format of Letters of Recommendation

References of applicants to the MSREE program can provide a Personal Evaluation of the applicant using this form.

References can be emailed to oit@oit.edu from the evaluator's professional email account, or may be mailed to the address on the evaluation form.

How much does the MSREE program cost?

Tuition is charged on a per credit hour basis, and 54 total graduate credits are required to earn the MSREE. The Tuition and Fees calculator can help you approximate costs per term. You would choose the following options:

Campus: Wilsonville
Class Standing: Graduate
Residency: Non-resident, unless you are a legal resident of the State of Oregon
Credit hours: I recommend choosing at least 9 credit hours when viewing graduate tuition, as this represents a full-time workload for a single term. Tuition and fees change for part-time students taking very few classes, so selecting 1 credit hour and multiplying the cost by 9 will not give you an accurate tuition assessment for full-time studies.
Housing option: off-campus, since the Wilsonville campus does not offer residence halls.
Special major or program: Engineering & Technology Major

Application for Admissions

We are currently receiving applications for Fall 2016. Oregon Tech encourages all prospective applicants to submit graduate application materials six months in advance of the planned enrollment date. Priority admission and Graduate Assistantships will be given to applications submitted by March 1st, but applications will be accepted up to May 1st for International Students and up to July 1st for US permanent residents. It is highly recommended applications be submitted as soon as possible.

Concurrent accelerated BSEE/MSREE and BSREE/MSREE Program Formats

Candidates interested in earning a bachelor of science in electrical or renewable energy engineering may apply to the accelerated BS/MS program. Both degrees are awarded simultaneously at the completion of the program.
  • Undergraduate students earning a first bachelor's degree - Students enrolled in undergraduate BSEE or BSREE programs can usually complete both degrees within five years.
  • Post-baccalaureate students - Students who are interested in the MSREE but do not have undergraduate degrees in engineering may wish to consider this accelerated program. Coursework from a first bachelor's degree can often be used to meet BSREE and BSEE requirements, allowing students to focus on the upper-division technical courses that will prepare them for master's-level engineering work.

To apply for the accelerated MSREE program, a student must be admitted to the undergraduate BSEE or BSREE program at Oregon Tech.
