New 10-month Master's Planned for Fall 2015

A new, accelerated Master's degree will train students to enter the fast-growing job market for specialists who can evaluate energy efficiency and other conservation initiatives. AAE plans a new M.A. in Resource and Energy Demand Analysis (REDA) for Fall 2015. We invite applications from students who want to work to promote environmental sustainability, who enjoy quantitative work, and who aim for good starting salaries.
