This two-year master qualification provides students with specialised knowledge and professional engineering skills to prepare them for a career in the rapidly-growing renewable energy industry. The program builds on the Australian National University's interdisciplinary engineering focus and research expertise to give students the skills to address complex multi-disciplinary problems, while at the same time providing advanced technical knowledge in renewable energy.
The program comprises a compulsory core that provides advanced engineering professional development and specialist knowledge in energy resources (renewable and non-renewable) and integration of renewable energy. In addition, students must complete at least two courses on renewable technologies that generate energy from solar and wind resources. Additional course options provide students with greater depth in the use or understanding of renewable energy. Students also have the opportunity to select electives from across the University, including courses in the complementary areas of energy policy, law and economics.
Work integrated learning is an important part of the program and is delivered through the group project and integrated exposure to professional practice throughout the program.
