Students in the Offshore Wind Energy Engineering master's program receive world-class training in wind policy, technical applications, and project management to prepare them for jobs in global industry, academia, and the public sector.
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:
A full-time student can complete the 10 course graduate program option in one year but three semesters are recommended, and part-time study is available.
The School of Engineering's Graduate Cooperative Education (Co-Op) Program provides students with the opportunity to apply the theoretical principles they have learned in their coursework to real-world engineering projects. Gain up to six months of full-time work experience, build your resume, and develop a competitive advantage for post-graduation employment. Learn more about the Co-Op 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.
Our faculty offer perspectives rooted in research and industry experience, so you'll graduate from the program with the skills needed to make an impact in the field.
Admission into the Department generally requires course credits in science (e.g. biology, chemistry, physics), mathematics (through differential equations), and engineering sciences (fluid mechanics, statics). Please note that students lacking one or more of these undergraduate preparations may be admitted on the condition that they complete the necessary coursework during their first year at Tufts.
Credits resulting from the successful completion (i.e., a grade of B or better) of conditional coursework are required to obtain a degree but may not be used to satisfy graduate course requirements within the degree program.
