Master Of Science In Energy Management

Fees Detail


The high cost of energy is one of the most serious constraints to economic growth in Kenya. Currently, it is estimated to account for up to 50% of the production costs in the manufacturing sector. This has resulted in diminished prize competitiveness of locally produced goods and reduced profits for investors. It is anticipated that as the economy grows, demand for energy will increase and this may keep the energy cost high for the next several years. Energy management is an effective means of reducing energy cost; principally by utilizing energy in the most efficient manner. Energy efficiency is beneficial not only to the economy but also to the environment. The availability of well-trained persons in the different aspects of energy efficiency is a limiting factor to the effective development and implementation of energy efficiency programmes. Most of the professionals working in various sectors of the economy lack clear understanding of energy efficiency opportunities and analysis to enable them develop and operate the programmes. In response to this demand and in the realm of Continuous Professional Development (CPD), the Departments of Mechanical and Electrical and Electronics Engineering have developed a Masters degree course in Energy Management. The proposed Master of Science degree course in Energy Management will provide appropriate knowledge and skills for energy management within manufacturing sector, service industries and business enterprises. This will enable the economy to cut energy cost, heighten competitiveness and minimize adverse effects on the environment. In addition, the course will promote entrepreneurship in energy utilization and can lead to Energy Manager certification. The programme is designed to train on current practical methods and technologies for efficient use of energy. The interdisciplinary programme covers relevant aspects of energy management that includes technical aspects and related financial analysis. It introduces theories and focuses on practical application methods of quantification of energy costs as related to the operations and equipments in the production of goods and services. The objectives of the course are to equip students with: Knowledge in energy, sources, availability and use. Knowledge and skills required for development, acquisition and application of improved methods and analysis in process design, operations and management to minimize energy costs, improve productivity and reinforce environmental responsibility. Technical as well as financial skills and ability to carry out research in energy management as well as develop and implement energy management projects.DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL AND MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING M.Sc.
