The Master of Energy Change is an interdisciplinary coursework program that allows you to develop a program of advanced learning suited to your individual interests, skills and aspirations in the area of energy change. A major key to addressing climate change is the need for a worldwide change to carbon-free forms of energy production.
You will tailor a suite of courses suited to your individual interests, skills and aspirations, developing your expertise in the relevant policy, legal, technological, environmental and regulatory aspects of energy change.
This program has a strong interdisciplinary core focusing on topics such as energy resources and renewable technologies, energy politics and governance, climate change science and policy, climate system science. The wide range of electives will enable you to explore interests in areas such asfluid mechanics and heat transfer, semiconductors, photovoltaic technologies, and solar thermal technologies and others
“I’m doing the Master of Energy Change part-time in conjunction with working for the ACT Government, and I’m finding the program very flexible and accommodating. It’s also a great fit with what I’m doing and is informing how I do my job.”
James's research is primarily in environmental law and litigation (particularly comparative research relating to climate change and the law, energy law, biodiversity law), regulatory theory, compliance and enforcement, clinical legal education.
The need for energy change is well established yet there are relatively few people with an effective overview or the multidisciplinary skils needed to effectivey contribute to this complex issue. Depending on the area of study and specialisation, our graduates find work in government, policy, scientific research, development and air organisations, and multinational companies. The Avanced program is also a pathway to advanced study.
