Master of Science in Technology and Master of Science in Sustainable Energy  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 Technology and Master of Science in Sustainable Energy concurrently.

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