Master of Renewable and Future Energy (coursework)
The Master of Renewable and Future Energy is designed to upskill engineering graduates for employment in the rapidly expanding renewable energy sector. It offers an opportunity for individuals to gain skills and knowledge to tackle the current challenges and opportunities that come with the uptake of clean energy and distributed renewable energy in microgrids. The course draws on content from across engineering disciplines to provide breadth and depth and addresses four key areas: (i) renewable energy sources and generation; (ii) energy storage systems; (iii) energy transmission and distribution, including smart grids and microgrids; and (iv) the main drivers and policies that impact the adoption of clean energy.
