Master of Energy Change

Climate change can only be addressed with a worldwide transition to carbon-free forms of energy. Our Master of Energy Change programs equip the next generation of decision-makers with the knowledge and skills to help drive this energy revolution.

There are currently relatively few practitioners with a broad understanding of the many issues involved, or the skills needed to contribute to this complex growth area. With a postgraduate qualification in energy change, you will develop your expertise in the relevant policy, legal, environmental and regulatory aspects of energy change, supported by a fundamental scientific and technical foundation. You will also have the flexibility to focus on areas of energy innovation most relevant to your professional needs, interests and skills, and in the Advanced program, an additional individually-tailored research project.

The ANU Energy Change Institute is Australia’s leading authority in energy research, education and public policy, comprising more than 300 staff and postgraduate students from across the spectrum of expertise at the University, and with over $100 million in infrastructure and facilities. Five of our researchers are ANU Public Policy Fellows, playing an important role in the development of policy alongside government and non-government agencies in the national capital.

Advanced program

In the Advanced program you will develop research expertise through completing a substantial dissertation, which constitutes appropriate research training for a PhD.

Career opportunities

Depending on the area of study and specialisation, our graduates find work in government, policy, scientific research, development and aid organisations, multi-national companies, and many other exciting fields. The Advanced program is also a pathway to a PhD.
