Often a precursor to more advanced science degrees, an Associate of Science is an introductory program that is generally completed in one or two years. It provides undergraduates with a base of knowledge and a diploma to show for their efforts.

What is an Associate of Science in Energy? Energy is an interdisciplinary field that combines different elements of science to study human demands on power. As technology continues to spread, this discipline seeks to discover ways to keep the world’s machines powered. Students can generally expect to be cover alternative energy, energy engineering, and the management of energy sources. A program may emphasize a specific area such as electrical technology or petroleum technology.

Problem-solving is a strong emphasis at many energy programs. Students can also expect to learn skills such as well drilling or electrical systems management, depending on the institution.

The financial concerns of studying for a degree can prove worrisome for many individuals. Because of the multitude of variables, it is difficult to give a specific price for a program. Scholarships, loans, and other programs can help to alleviate the costs associated with an Associate of Science in Energy.

Like most science-based degrees, graduates typically find careers directly related to their field. Government and corporate jobs are generally both available as power demands are important to both groups. Government departments work with public power grids and examine the development of alternative energy sources. Private employment can range from traditional power sources to new forms of energy. Positions such as energy distribution manager, quality control lab technician, and field specialist are examples of titles in this industry.

While very useful to a future career, full-time study often requires that students put their lives on hold to gain their Associate of Science in Energy. Online and part-time study are convenient options for more established undergraduates who may have commitments outside of school.
