What will I learn?
The Master of Energy Change (Advanced) is a multi-disciplinary coursework and research degree which will provide you with both a strong basis in the fundamental areas related to energy change, as well as allowing you to undertake advanced courses and research in areas suited to your individual interests. A major key to addressing climate change is the need for a world-wide change to carbon-free forms of energy production. Our program brings together the wide-ranging expertise present at ANU to cover policy, legal, environmental and regulatory aspects of energy change, underpinned by a fundamental scientific and technical base.
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.
The need for energy change is well-established yet there are relatively few people with an effective overview or the multi-disciplinary skills needed to effectively contribute to this complex issue.
Depending on the area of study and specialization our graduates find work in government, policy, scientific research, development and aid organizations, multi-national companies, and many other exciting fields. This progressive program is also a pathway to gain entry into a PhD.
On completion of the program, graduates will have the skills and knowledge to:
Demonstrate cognitive, technical and creative skills to investigate, analyze and synthesize complex information, problems, concepts and theories relating to energy
Apply multi-disciplinary approaches to address complex real-world energy-related problems
Demonstrate a high level of technical knowledge in subjects relevant to energy and climate change.
Communicate effectively with colleagues, other professionals and the broader community using a range of communication media and tools
Demonstrate knowledge of research methods and carry out research in the area of energy climate change and/or sustainability, and collate data into a thesis,
Communicate own research work to peers and research scientists.
