Master of Science in Sustainable Energy and Master of Science in Technology Dual Degree Program

The EIU Master of Science Dual Degree Program offers graduate students an opportunity to obtain degrees in both the Master of Science in Sustainable Energy and Master of Science in Technology concurrently.

The Master of Science in Sustainable Energy program focuses primarily on developing leadership and management skills in a energy environment; whereas, the Master of Science in Technology focuses on developing these same skills in an technological environment. The Dual Degree program enables students to obtain two graduate degrees at the same time which creates more marketable resume.
