Master of Engineering in Engineering Management and Energy Studies (Thesis Option Only)

​​​​​​​​The dual Master degree program in the Engineering Management and Energy Studies responds to the rapidly growing interest in the intersection between approaches to the issues of sustainability, energy, economics, and technology adoption. The objective of a dual Master’s degree is to encourage students to pursue interdisciplinary studies in these two related programs while pursuing one thesis that addresses both disciplines of engineering management and energy. Graduates of the Dual Degree programs can be expected to find leadership positions within their disciplines and careers in energy and engineering management. ​​​

​General Information

​The dual Master degree – Master of Engineering in Engineering Management and Energy Studies – program is primarily intended for individuals with a bachelor degree in engineering who seek to deepen their knowledge in advanced energy studies and engineering management subjects. 

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the ME-ENMG / MS-ENST dual degree program, students will be able to:

  • Evaluate various issues of sustainability, energy, economics and technology adoption with innovative and critical thinking.
  • Analyze critical technical and management needs of the energy sector.
  • Apply complex energy resource planning processes and associated technologies.
  • Explain advances in selected energy technologies and their impact on market economy and development activities. 
  • Explain principles and processes in Engineering Management and Energy Studies
  • Analyze key parameters and the technical, economic and environmental pertaining to engineering management and energy studies.
  • Use appropriate methods required to address novel situations, 
  • Apply new skills in emerging technologies as required.
  • Use interdisciplinary methods to solve complex problems pertaining to engineering management and energy studies.
  • Design critical and independent assessments of methods and results.
  • Explain the scientific foundations for work within the energy engineering area
  • Describe the complexity of energy systems.
  • Evaluate the technical and social challenges of running energy organizations and complex systems.​

Admission Requirements

Applicants must be accepted in both programs (Master of Engineering Management ​and Master of Science in Energy Studies​) and in accordance with the policies of each program, and with AUB policies regarding dual graduate degrees.

A student wishing to apply for the dual degree may submit a single dual-degree application that will be sent to each program simultaneously when first applying for graduate admissions. If the student is already registered in one degree s/he may apply for the second degree no later than the end of a student's second semester at AUB.​​

Course Requirements​

The program permits full-time or part-time enrollments. To fulfill the basic requirements for the dual degree, a student must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours of graduate course work in​each degree program. The remaining credits include additional course work and a thesis that are credited to the dual degree.

The program requires a minimum of 42 credit hours of graduate course work and 6 credits of thesis work. The course work is distributed as follows:

  • 9 credits of core Engineering Studies (ENST) courses
  • ​6 credits of core Engineering Management (ENMG) courses​​: Required core ENMG (ENST List A Electives) 
  • 12 credits of ENMG elective courses
  • 6 credits of elective course from ENST List B on energy science and technology
  • 3 credits elective course as approved by thesis advisor/s (ENST)
The courses that are counted toward both degrees are: 

  • ENMG 603 Probability and Decision Analysis 3 cr.
  • ENMG 604 Deterministic Optimization Model 3 cr. 
  • Comprehensive Exam 0 cr. 
  • Thesis 6 Cr.​​
