A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
Energy programs are designed to provide students with an education on power sources. Certain programs in this field may focus on a specific type of energy as well as the development of new alternatives.
A country situated to the southern tip of Africa, South Africa, has a rich culture that you will never get enough of while touring or studying here. The languages here include Afrikaner and English as well as Dutch. The campus life of the vast South African University, University of Johannesburg or any other university will be mind blowing. You will love interacting with the Bantus here and the tropical climate of the region.
Masters Degree in Energy in South Africa
The primary purpose of the MPhil in Energy Studies minor-dissertation with coursework is to provide students with specialised advanced education and training while meeting the requirements of a specific research component so that students can master the required experimental and technological skills and necessary fieldwork competencies such as innovation, decision-making, strategic thinking and organizational skills. A minor-dissertation with coursework MPhil in Energy Studies consists of a minimum of 120 credits of research at level 8 in the form of a research project, written up as a minor-dissertation. [+]

Master in Energy
The Institutional Research Theme “Energy” strives to provide the best balance between the University’s current research activities and the energy focus areas that are prioritised by Government, with an initial focus on electrical energy. This will set the University on the road towards national relevancy as it will be searching for solutions to South Africa’s energy problems.
The main research themes include:Energy Production (This includes all viable energy production technologies, ranging from coal to nuclear to renewables.) Energy Distribution (This includes highly relevant topics such as “smart grids” and energy storage, which are gaining importance in the light of the increasing contribution of renewable energies such as solar and wind energy.) Energy Optimisation (The majority of energy plants are not very efficient, which creates considerable opportunities for research to improve thermal efficiency, improve efficiency by managing the demand side, plant lifetime extension, etc.) Advanced Materials (Almost all energy systems make use of advanced materials. Specific focus materials would be, for example, high-temperature materials and graphite.) Policy, Economics and Society (Many energy systems do not fail technically, but fail because of poor policy decisions, legal shortcomings, poor economic modelling, poor project management, or poor societal management strategies.) Environment (Climate change is seen as a large component within the energy sector, notably aspects that link to greenhouse gases, nuclear and other waste, and carbon footprint.) ... [-]
