Energy Systems Engineering

Our Energy Systems Engineering Master’s Program Is at the Forefront of Technologies That Move the World

University of Michigan’s world-class Energy Systems Engineering faculty in Integrative Systems + Design energizes students in the areas of sustainable energy generation, storage, and conversion. We’re socially conscious and responsible, too. We empower students to learn about alternative and conventional energy technologies, the societal and environmental impact of technology developments, and the economic benefits of those developments.

This degree can be completed fully online from almost anywhere in the world, or on-campus here in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Why the ISD Energy Systems Engineering Program?​​

We are highly flexible, offering personalized plans of study that can allow students to address truly complex challenges. This is accomplished through courses designed by faculty members from across the University of Michigan, including the College of Engineering, the School for Environment and Sustainability, the Ross School of Business, the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning of Art and Architecture, and the College of Literature Science and Arts.
