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.
The Master of Energy Change (MEnCh) is a postgraduate coursework program offering you the chance to develop a program of advanced learning suited to your individual interests, skills and aspirations in the area of energy change.
Graduates can find work in government, scientific research, development and aid organisations, multi-national companies and technology start-ups. The MEnCh program is also a pathway to more advanced study. Students can also undertake industry placements for course credit by selecting internship subjects within the degree.
This program has a strong interdisciplinary core focusing on topics such as energy technologies, energy policies and governance, climate change and energy economics. The wide range of electives will enable you to explore interests in areas such as specific solar and wind technologies, power systems and microgrids, nuclear technology and environmental decision making.
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.

Energy Change careers
The need for energy change is well established yet there are relatively few people with an effective overview or the multidisciplinary skills needed to effectively contribute to this complex issue. Depending on the area of study and specialisation, our graduates find work in government, policy, scientific research, development and aid organisations, and multinational companies. The advanced program is also a pathway to further study.

Join students studying the Master of Science Communication and the Master of Energy Change at ANU, that have transitioned to studying remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic and hear about their experiences.
If you graduated from an Australian university, UAC will be able to access your results in most cases. However, you may be asked to provide transcripts or other documentation, so it is a good idea to prepare your records just in case.
You can still apply before you complete your bachelor degree if you are in your final year, and you must advise UAC in your application. You may need to provide a copy of your academic transcript directly to UAC as soon as you complete your degree. UAC will provide instructions during the application process.
There are three assessment rounds in each semester. Applying in the first round will give you three opportunities to be assessed and accepted, giving you the best chance of being offered a place at ANU.
