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 ANU’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 includes specialised courses in solar, wind and other renewable technologies, utility-scale systems design, grid integration and energy efficiency. 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.
Graduates from ANU have been rated as Australia's most employable graduates and among the most sought after by employers worldwide.
The latest Global Employability University Ranking, published by the Times Higher Education, rated ANU as Australia's top university for getting a job for the fourth year in a row.
This program is available for applications to commence from First Semester, 2017
