This Graduate Diploma provides graduate training for Australian and international professionals working, or wishing to work, in the areas of climate change management or sustainable energy and environmental management. There are two specialisations in this Diploma:
- (i) Climate Change Management
(ii) Energy, Emissions and Environment
Recent significant changes in the global climate change policy environment have meant a shift to a broader range of adaptation and mitigation practices to counter climate change. This is driving a demand for professionals with climate change skills across the Asia Pacific region and in Australia and the Climate Change Management Specialisation is designed in collaboration with industry to address this demand. The aim of the Climate Change Management specialisation is to provide advanced training in the areas of climate change adaptation and strategy, carbon policy, accounting and management as well as sustainability.
The Energy, Emissions and Environment is specifically targeted to address the ongoing demand for the use of sustainable energy and the need for environmental management of such projects. This specialisation is interdisciplinary in nature, consisting of units drawn from the areas of energy studies and environmental impact assessment. Students can complete the course with a focus upon the policy and/or the scientific aspects of the environmental management of the energy industry.
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.
