What You'll Learn

The Master of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering (MSREE) program is offered at Oregon Tech’s Klamath Falls Campus and Portland-Metro Campus (in Wilsonville). The MSREE program has been structured to accommodate 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 in nascent and established industries, government entities and NGOs.

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.

Specialized Sequences

The MSREE program at Oregon Tech allows students to select from a wide variety of specializations including Advanced Energy Storage, Biofuels and Biomass, Electrical Power Systems, Electrochemical Systems, Energy Efficient Building Systems, Energy Storage, Fuel Cell Systems, Geothermal Energy, Global Energy Issues, Hydro Power Systems and Integration, Photovoltaic Systems, and Wind Power Systems.

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