Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGSR)

At Carleton University, our graduate students benefit from the advantages that can only be found from living and studying in Canada’s national capital. Students study and work alongside researchers and students from around the world and benefit from living in the place where national decisions are made.

Our new Masters in Sustainable Energy is a groundbreaking program exposing students to both policy and energy technology issues delivered collaboratively by the Faculty of Engineering and Design and the School of Public Policy and Administration.

Masters in Sustainable Energy

This multidisciplinary program will be offered in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering and Design and the School of Public Policy and Administration.  The Sustainable Energy Masters program has three fields:

  1. Mechanical Energy Conversion: This field covers advanced principles of sustainable energy engineering from a mechanical point of view and leads to either an M.A.Sc. or an M.Eng.
  2. Efficient Electrical Energy Systems: This field involves research in technological devices, components and systems that are intended for sustainable electrical energy generation, conversion, distribution and monitoring, and leads to either an M.A.Sc. or an M.Eng.
  3. Sustainable Energy Policy:  This field focuses on the public policy dimensions of sustainable energy problems, leading to a MA degree. Graduates gain an advanced understanding of the ways in which energy policy is made, policy choices and policy instruments, and the challenges that confront public policy in this field.
