The Master of Energy Systems is a 150 point degree, including 100 points of core subjects and 50 points of electives. This degree is designed for graduates with at least a three-year degree in Engineering, Economics/Business or Science or related disciplines, with appropriate mathematics.

The course aims to meet the educational needs of students ultimately seeking to work as energy specialists in government and industry, the latter including technical and business consulting and accounting/audit. Graduates will bridge the gap between technical and non-technical roles and will have an understanding of renewable and non-renewable energy as well as relevant business, policy and management.

A key feature of this degree is its strong engagement with industry and the potential to undertake industry based work in the subject ‘Energy Systems Project’. This is primarily through the degree’s Advisory Panel, which is made up of energy sector specialists from a wide range of organisations. Subject prerequisites have also been sequenced to enable part time course plans.
