Graduate Education Programs
Energy/ Environment/ Economics (E3)
The Energy/Environment/Economics (E3) Program provides an interdisciplinary specialization spanning 11 Master of Science, Professional Master and Ph.D. engineering programs. IIT's E3 program was developed to respond to the rapidly changing needs of the energy industry by providing the interdisciplinary research and training required to produce a new breed of engineer -- one who specializes in energy technologies and also understands the associated environmental issues and economic forces that drive technology choice.
Master of Science, Professional Master's and Ph.D. degree programs in Environmental Engineering enable students to build a strong foundation in multiple areas of environmental engineering and to specialize in one area via research and thesis. Areas of specialization include air resources; earthquake and wind engineering; energy/environment/economics (E3); energy systems, energy conservation and buildings track; hazardous waste engineering; indoor air quality; and water and wastewater treatment.
IIT’s Master of Power Engineering degree program is designed to prepare students for leading edge positions in industry through the areas of electric power, power electronics, motor drives and electric machines. The Professional Master of Power Engineering is a course-only degree program that prepares students for professional practice in power engineering.
IIT Stuart School of Business’ Master of Science in Sustainability Management program integrates law, science and business to answer the increasing demand for a uniquely trained management professional who understands the complex dimensions of today's environmental issues.
IIT Stuart's MBA with a Sustainability program concentration prepares students for an understanding of how an organization can develop a competitive advantage while allowing the planet's natural resources to support it indefinitely.
Undergraduate Education Programs
E3 also is available as an undergraduate specialization and requires students to take 15 credit hours in courses from interdisciplinary curricula, including Energy, Environment and Economics (ChE 543), and courses in energy production, conversion, utilization and distribution, energy and environmental systems analysis, and special problems. An undergraduate minor program in Environmental Engineering is also offered (15 credit hours).
