The core of Energy Systems Engineering is mechanical engineering for design, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer; and industrial engineering for system and process improvement and optimization. Energy courses are included to involve systems assessment and efficiency improvement as well as regulations, sources, storage and distribution of energy supply. Business applications are included in terms of financial analysis of alternatives as well as project and operations management. ESE is a flexible degree designed to meet industrial needs for both companies who supply energy in terms of generation and regulations as well as companies who are heavy consumers of energy in terms of efficiency improvement and cost reductions.

MECOP currently accepts Energy Systems Engineering students from the following universities:

Skills & Disciplines

Skills that MECOP Energy Systems Engineering interns develop include an understanding of processes, systems, and designs that generate or utilize energy. In addition, interns focusing on Energy Systems Engineering often learn about project and operations management, enhance problem-solving and teamwork skills and gain experience in company-regulator interactions.

The broad base of skills opens many possibilities for Energy Systems Engineering jobs. Interns would benefit from performing either mechanical or industrial engineering applications, particularly on their first internship.
