  1. 1. MS Management, Energy Management & Sustainability Concentrations (INITIAL DRAFT – 13 Nov 08) By Dr. Phil Burian & Dr. Skip MaffeiPreambleThis program has been developed as a result of the need for alternative, renewable andemerging energy education. Numerous research and employment organizations are suggestingthis discipline and market sector will be one of the fastest growing areas for the next twodecades and perhaps beyond.We are seeing both developed and developing nations face ever-growing challenges to meetbasic human needs in energy management and sustainability. Key issues include depletion offossil fuels, global warming, water scarcity, loss of biodiversity and the human health impact, allof which are compounded by an expanding global population and economic operations.Innovative solutions are required at all levels of society to address these complex and inter-related problems. Individuals and communities, small businesses and global corporations,government agencies and non-governmental organizations – each constituency plays a vitalrole in the creation of a sustainable world. The Sustainability field of study offers aninterdisciplinary curriculum focused on enabling technology and enterprise to enhance thesustainability of systems that provide mobility, shelter, sustenance, communication andrecreation.Currently, there are a handful of universities that have programs but are more focused on thedevelopment and experimentation of the technologies. Very little was discovered that providesan executive or mid-level management education that fits our mission or student base. Basedon this research it is believed the following program fills an education gap that preparesindividuals for emerging and future energy and energy related products and services.As of November 2008, President-Elect Obama has proposed to capitalize government andindustrial organizations to develop and implement renewable energy sources in an effort toeliminate this country from foreign solutions and energy dependence. Along with each coursesome example samples of textbooks are provided. However, it is suggested that we select atext that has instructor or supporting content in order to bring the courses online as quickly aspossible. It should also be noted that the Concentration courses could be easily used as aConcentration for the MBA program.Program Description
  2. 2. The global thirst for reliable and sustainable energy and sustainable systems is growing at analmost incomprehensible rate. Consumption and control of energy related resources, productsand services across the planet are rapidly becoming an issue of not only national security butone of economic survivability. This program is designed to explore a wide range of energy andalternative sources. These sources include biomass, hydro, wind, solar, hydrogen, nuclear, coalas well modified or enhanced petroleum based derivatives with respect to economics,distribution systems, supporting technology, planning and design, and plant operations.What would an economy, indeed a society, look like if the material security of its citizens andthe ecological integrity of its resource base was a top priority? How would it organize itself,structure its industry, shape its consumption? How would a local-global culture operate if noparty could solve its environmental problems by displacing costs onto others? What are theconditions in which humans tend not to increase their use of material and energy? The EnergyManagement and Sustainability degree programs will help the student to understand and beable to explore and explain these questions.Program Outcomes • Understand the theories, concepts and implementation strategies for a wide range of alternative energy sources • Analyze and assess potential alternative and emerging energy technologies and sources and their application • Develop strategies for integrating alternative energy systems, technologies and solutions • Evaluate alternative and emerging energy technologies, their feasibility and their impact to society • Develop a strategic plan for an alternative energy implementation to include scalability, reliability, safety, design, environmental, distribution, and operations • Work effectively as problem-solving team member • Conduct, use, and evaluate professional applied researchCore Curriculum (Already Offered)There are a number of courses already offered. If we want to use other courses we cansubstitute as necessary.

  9. 9. This is an integrative capstone course in which the student synthesizes the skills acquired from previouscourses to identify, develop, and capitalize on alternative, renewable and emerging opportunities. Thecourse provides the opportunity to assess emerging concepts and solutionsand develop a strategy andplan for an energy source or technology. Specifically, the course focuses on how to create and sustainstrategies that provide value to the business, consumers, and society as a whole. The goal is on craftingan effective and comprehensive strategy and plans for the entire life-cycle of the sustainable source ortechnology implementation. Analyze an alternate, renewable, or emerging solution or technology Evaluate potential safety, social, environmental, security and ethical related issues Develop an economic model for the selected sustainable source or technology Develop an energy distribution model and strategy Develop a recurring support operations strategy Develop an integrated plan that includes the entire life-cycle of a sustainable source or technology to include economic, safety, security, social, environmental, and ethical strategies Demonstrate collaborative, analytical, and communication skillsPotential Employment OpportunitiesThis Graduate level degree is designed to provide the individual with a broad range of emerging Green,Sustainable, and Alternative Energy related career opportunities. Furthermore, this degree is targetedfor executive and mid-level management positions in government and industry. Students will bedeveloping the skills necessary for effective and innovative leadership in the public and private sectors.Graduates also pursue careers in the private sector, often involving engineering and productdevelopment, management consulting and strategic and sustainability planning. The degree programcould provide the student with the skills to possibly fill a professional position in the public sector withfederal agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency or the National Renewable Energy Lab,with a state or municipal governmental unit, or with nonprofit groups, such as Environmental Defenseor the Natural Resources Defense Council.The areas of opportunityinclude the following: Green Product or Service Providers Energy Solutions Provider Power Distribution Plant Management Equipment Manufacturing Operations and Maintenance Technical Project Manager or Lead Energy Solutions Planning and Development Renewable Energy ProviderPreliminary Market AnalysisAfter a cursory market search for Energy Management programs there a few examples ofprograms throughout the education community. There are as follows: 1. University of Colorado, Denver – MS Global Energy Management 2. NYIT – MS Energy Management 3. Bismark State College – Bachelor’s Energy Management
  10. 10. 4. University of Maryland – Environmental ManagementThere are also a number of other schools that offer energy and energy related programs andcourses that are more focused on Environmental Science and in that set of disciplines. Onething to note is most of the Energy Management programs fall under the Business Departmentsof these schools.The following URLs outline the CU Denver programs:http://www.metrodenver.org/news-center/metro-denver-news/global-energy-program.htmlhttp://business.cudenver.edu/Graduate/GEM.htmThe following URL Outlines the University of Houston programs:http://www.bauer.uh.edu/gemi/The following URL lists all of the energy related associations. More importantly, it lists the jobsavailable across the United States:http://www.powerplantjobs.com/ppj.nsf/EnergyLinks?OpenForm&cat=Associations&Count=1000The following URLs are extremely interesting. Note that many states and organizations haveemerged with their own technical publications and associations:http://www.michigan.gov/dleg/0,1607,7-154-25676_25769---,00.htmlhttp://www.uneptie.org/energy/publications/index.htm (This UN one is really interesting sincethe texts and reports can be downloaded for free. They could be used as a text for thecourses.)
