Master of Engineering - Renewable Energy

Australian National University (ANU)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00120C

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. Global renewable energy jobs grew 18% between 2013 and 2014, and were estimated at 7.7 million in 2014, with 2.5 million jn photovoltaics, and 1 million in wind energy (IRENA Renewable Energy and Jobs Annual Review, 2015). China, Brazil, the United States, India and Germany are the key employers, however, emerging renewable energy markets such as Japan, Bangladesh and Indonesia are gaining prominence. This 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 extends the breadth of coverage of renewable energy topics, and puts more emphasis on systems and integration to be better aligned with key areas of industry growth. This augmentation includes new courses focusing on large-scale commercial Solar Farms, Wind Energy, Urban Energy Generation and Energy Efficiency, Grid Integration of Renewable Energy, and Industrial Energy.
