Upon completion of a master’s degree, some students choose to continue their educational endeavors by pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy. During a doctoral program, the student completes independent research that cumulates in the creation and defense of a dissertation.

What is a PhD in Energy Engineering? These courses normally cover a variety of topics, including carbon footprints, environmental saving technology, storage of various forms of power and methods of green energy retrieval such as solar panels and windmills. In addition to typical coursework, students may be required to take elective courses, publish articles in scholarly journals and write and defend a dissertation.

Over the course of this PhD program, students can gain skills in analyzing power needs, designing solutions to energy problems and implementing new technology into existing systems. At the culmination of their schooling, graduates are poised to take the lead in conceiving and applying energy plans.  

The cost of any degree curriculum relies heavily on the duration, location and demands of the curriculum. The PhD coursework typically take three years to complete, though the dissertation can take years depending on how involved the research process may be.

Many PhD students enter into the track with the goal of ultimately teaching in the field. Professors almost always obtain a doctorate to best qualify them to pass on knowledge to future students. Graduates of an energy engineering doctoral program may become directors, managers and other leaders at nuclear plants, government agencies and private companies around the world. Senior energy consultant, energy engineer, energy trading market analyst and senior plant manager are just a few of the many career paths a graduate might choose.

A PhD may be the right option to launch a graduate’s career to the next level. Online degree options make the process easier than ever. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
