The Sustainable Energy Engineering and Management (SEEM) programme is open to all applicants having the requisite technical background knowledge: First-degree holders of renewable energy technologies, electrical, environmental, mechanical and energy engineering, sciences, agriculture, and professionals with industry experience interested in pursuing postgraduate diploma, masters and Ph.D. degrees in sustainable energy management.

Masters Programme:
To be eligible for admission into the Master’s Research Degree programme, candidates must be graduates of this University or any other University recognised by the Academic Board and shall normally have obtained a minimum of Second Class (Lower Division) degree in the relevant field (eg. renewable energy engineering, electrical engineering, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, agricultural engineering, etc). Excellent candidates may be admitted into a research master’s programme in the first instance and later upgraded into the Ph.D. prograame after successful completion of the course work and upon recommendations from the Department and School Boards. For non-research Masters degree candidates, holders of Bachelors degree with a minimum of three (3) years of working experience may be considered for admission. Holders of postgraduate diploma certificates with excellent classification may be admitted to non-research Masters programmes. The Departments may require further selection by examination and/or interview.

Admission and Selection:
The admission and selection process to the Sustainable Energy Engineering and Management programme shall reflect the academic rigor and preparation needed for this programme. Meeting the minimum qualifications for this programme does not guarantee admission. Candidates are encouraged to achieve well beyond the minimum qualifications to enhance their chances of selection. The Energy and Petroleum Engineering Department at UENR uses a holistic approach in selecting candidates for admission. Applicants are thoroughly reviewed to determine the full spectrum of their academic and personal achievements through examination and/or interview


Admission to our programs is solely determined by merit and is not influenced by a student’s ability to pay tuition fees.
