NYIT-Vancouver Launches Master of Science in Energy Management

January 7, 2016

With newly written consent from British Columbia’s Ministry of Advanced Education, NYIT-Vancouver will begin offering a Master of Science in Energy Management in June 2016. Based in NYIT School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, the M.S.-Energy Management program spans the fields of energy systems, environmental technology, and facilities management.

Beginning in June, NYIT-Vancouver will also offer two new courses in the field of environmental management, both of which can be used toward your M.S. in Energy Management: Introduction to Environmental Technology (ENVT 601) and Alternative Energy Systems (ENGY 775).

Introduction to Environmental Technology

You will learn fundamentals of environmental technology and energy management:

  • Problem-solving in various environmental conditions
  • The science behind pollution monitoring
  • Effective ways to protect air, land, biota, and water
  • Environmental impact
  • Regulations and technologies associated with water
  • Air quality
  • Toxic and hazardous substances

The course also includes field trips, case studies, and invited guest speakers.

Alternative Energy Systems

You will learn about a range of alternative energy options available for heating, cooling, transportation, and power generation. Renewable energy resources, such as solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, and biomass, are discussed in depth. Distributed generation systems, including fuel cells, photovoltaics, and mircroturbines, are analyzed from technical, economic, and environmental perspectives.

Applicant Requirements

For the degree program or either course you need a bachelor's degree in engineering, science, economics, or business, and have basic quantitative analysis skills such as college algebra and basic statistics.
