The Doctor of Philosophy, or PhD, is the highest academic degree students can obtain in a wide range of academic areas. It helps students gain research skills and become recognized experts in their particular fields.

What is a PhD in Energy Studies? The program is geared towards research into and deep understanding of energy systems, climate change, and energy generation, distribution, and supply. Some areas of study include renewable energy, energy investment and finance, policy, development, low-emission technologies, law, climate science, and strategies and innovation in carbon management. Other courses include low-carbon power-generation technologies, entrepreneurship, management, and energy efficiency and transport.

Students who complete the PhD program may attain the ability to apply knowledge and research methods towards solving problems in and out of the field. They may also gain the writing skills needed for publishable work and the leadership abilities needed to advance research and development.

The total cost of a PhD in Energy Studies is contingent upon the selected school, the country where it is based and where the student lives. The course duration runs between three and five years. Promising students should request information from potential schools for more information on tuition.

Those who earn a PhD in Energy Studies can have energy-related careers in both the public and the private sectors. Advisors help analyze and formulate energy policy. Researchers develop renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies. Other career possibilities include energy supply manager or director, environmental analyst, chemist, engineer, environmental planner, geologist, or regulatory analyst. Jobs may involve either improving energy efficiency in existing grids or advancing innovations in alternative energy.

PhD programs in Energy Studies are available in universities around the world, both online and in person. If you are interested in pursuing this degree, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
