Course Description

This Graduate Diploma is intended to provide graduate training for Australian and international professionals working, or wishing to work, in the field of environmental management of the energy industry. The course is interdisciplinary in nature, consisting of units drawn from the areas of energy studies and environmental impact assessment. The objective of the course is to provide students with an understanding of the policy context of energy systems, the environmental impacts associated with these systems, and their assessment and subsequent monitoring.

The course will be relevant to consultants wishing to practice in this field and to people employed by various private and public organisations that are active in the energy and environment area. It contains a specialisation in Global Warming and Climate Science that is directed towards addressing the impacts of global warming and the development of mitigation and adaptation methods.

The course is directed to the interface between energy studies and environmental impact assessment and assumes some prior knowledge. Students can complete the course with a focus upon the policy and/or the scientific aspects of the environmental management of the energy industry. Students will gain knowledge about holistic approaches to sustainable energy development and how to improve existing energy systems. They will develop knowledge of climate change science, energy and carbon policy, the management and reporting of energy and carbon emissions, the environmental impacts associated with energy systems, and their assessment and subsequent monitoring.

Successful completion of the unit PEN590 Energy Systems gives the student provisional accreditation by the Clean Energy Council for design of stand-alone photovoltaic systems

Graduates can expect to gain employment in power generation companies, renewable energy manufacturing and installation companies, international aid organisations, government departments, energy efficiency and environmental consultancies, university and private industry research organisations.
