32 credit hours
This program has the same requirements as the M.S. degree program, except that, in place of six to eight credit hours of M.S. thesis research, students are required to register for two to five credits of special projects research (CHE 594), plus additional E3 courses with the approval of their advisor. Students are also encouraged to register or attend the interdisciplinary graduate seminar (CHE 593) or general seminars offered in energy and/or sustainability areas by WISER.
