Master of Energy Change

The Master of Energy Change gives energy decision-makers the tools to deal with the challenges of tomorrow's energy needs

A key to addressing climate change is a world-wide change to carbon-free forms of energy. This energy change also offers a number of other benefits to society: it not only facilitates the transition to a sustainable economy, but also improves energy access and security and increases energy productivity for the benefit of the wider economy.

Currently there are relatively few practitioners with a broad understanding of the many issues involved, or the skills needed to contribute to, this complex growth area.

Put yourself at the vanguard of the energy revolution

The Master of Energy Change equips the next generation of energy decision makers with the knowledge and skills to help drive and lead the energy revolution.

Addressing the challenges of energy change requires innovative, interdisciplinary approaches. This degree is ideal for those with a technical background or a non-technical background as it bridges the gap between technical and non technical skills such as policy, law and economics. The Masters of Energy Change provides a strong basis in the fundamentals of economics, governance, policy, sociology and technology related to energy change, whilst also giving students the flexibility to focus on areas of energy innovation most relevant to their professional needs, interests and skills.

As the need for energy change grows, demand for these skills will only increase.
