The Master of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering (MSREE) program is offered at Oregon Tech’s Klamath Falls Campus and Portland-Metro Campus (in Wilsonville). The MSREE program has been structured to accommodate both full-time students and working professionals. The MSREE program is designed to prepare graduates to be energy engineering professionals who have advanced knowledge and skills that enable them to assume a broad range of technical leadership roles in nascent and established industries, government entities and NGOs.

Concurrent accelerated BSEE/MSREE and BSREE/MSREE Program Formats

Candidates interested in earning a bachelor of science in electrical or renewable energy engineering may apply to the accelerated BS/MS program. Both degrees are awarded simultaneously at the completion of the program.

  • Undergraduate students earning a first bachelor's degree - Students enrolled in undergraduate BSEE or BSREE programs can usually complete both degrees within five years.
  • Post-baccalaureate students - Students who are interested in the MSREE but do not have undergraduate degrees in engineering may wish to consider this accelerated program. Coursework from a first bachelor's degree can often be used to meet BSREE and BSEE requirements, allowing students to focus on the upper-division technical courses that will prepare them for master's-level engineering work.


From Egypt to Oregon Tech

A few years ago Andrew Boules, a native of Suez, Egypt, was ready to change careers. There was a new excitement about renewables, progress in systems and advancements happening quickly. He wanted to be part of that movement.
