Summary... header image

This course prepares students to work in the energy field by exposing them to the fundamental concepts of energy sources, generation, distribution, consumption and optimisation. Building on these fundamentals students study more specialised topics such as Green Technologies where wind, wave, solar and geothermal energies are harnessed as an alternative to fossil fuel technologies.

In addition to energy technologies you will study national and international energy markets and how they relate to energy production, consumption and optimisation. In years 3 and 4 students complete projects that will provide them with the opportunity to develop their time and project management skills and to showcase their talents
