The post-baccalaureate program in Offshore Wind Energy Engineering provides a pathway for students from other disciplines to pursue the MS and/or PhD degree program at Tufts. Students enroll in graduate-level courses alongside other engineering students to learn the core concepts of the industry.
The program is offered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
At Tufts, you’ll earn a student-centered education at a top-notch research university, with small classes and cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research led by innovative faculty who are here to help you succeed. Common research areas include:
Eight graduate-level courses are required for the post-bac certificate in offshore wind energy engineering. Courses numbered above 100 award graduate credit, and grades of B- or better are transferable into the MS or PhD program in Offshore Wind Energy Engineering upon acceptance to the advanced degree program.
Offshore wind energy plays a critical role in the world’s transition to an electricity-based, clean energy economy. Standing at the intersection of infrastructure, manufacturing, and ocean science, offshore wind engineers work effectively with a wide range of partners to deliver technical excellence in the context of evolving markets, policies, and regulations.
As the wind energy industry continues to rapidly grow, your career possibilities as an offshore wind energy engineer will grow with it. Renewable energy is a key piece of the “green economy” puzzle—and wind power (which provides thousands of jobs in the United States every year) is the fastest growing sector in renewable energy.
Students in the Offshore Wind Energy Engineering program receive world-class training in wind policy, technical applications, and project management to prepare them for the MS and PhD programs in the discipline at Tufts.
