Sustaining energy production and use is becoming increasingly challenging and requires innovative research into new and existing technologies, changes in consumer behaviour and more creative policy and regulatory approaches. Our graduate program in sustainable energy addresses these crucial challenges in a unique interdisciplinary fashion that involves both engineering and public policy.
Both the MPP and MEng programs offer Co-op options. And the MEng and MPP programs recently added a collaborative specialization in Climate Change.
Note: The MPP and MEng program only accepts applications for the Fall entry term.
Being in the nation’s capital is a unique opportunity to experience the shaping of sustainable energy policies at the national and international level through interactions with federal departments, ENGOs, various multilateral energy associations and national research labs. Our location provides access to local government agencies and research institutions and enables our students to study the interactions between municipal, provincial and federal government departments, think-tanks, industry associations and international energy-related NGOs. Many career opportunities are just down the road.
