Course description

52764WA Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies

This Graduate Certificate has identical standing and level to that of a university Graduate Diploma, but is focused on the career outcomes of a professional engineer and technologist. As the title suggests, it has a greater vocational or ‘job related’ emphasis, and focuses more on developing practical skills that you can apply to the workplace, rather than theory alone.

A feature of this program is that in using web collaborative technologies you will not only study and work with your peers around the world on various renewable energy design projects, but you will do this conveniently from your desktop using the latest techniques in live web and video conferencing. The Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies focuses on the mainstream technologies viz. photovoltaic, wind and small hydro, but also covers other less common technologies such as biomass, osmotic and tide power generation, among others.

The course deals with practical issues of renewable energy that will confront an advanced practitioner in the field.

Entry Requirements

This Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies program is an advanced program designed for individuals who may already have an undergraduate qualification such as a Bachelor Science in Engineering or higher or, if you are lacking this, relevant substantial experience in the subject area (subject to the approval of the Dean) combined with evidence of continuing professional development. The program involves depth and complexity in varied specialized contexts.

Applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis and potential students include:

  • Practising engineers or technologists with advanced knowledge, experience and education in the subject (such as a relevant bachelor’s degree)
  • Practising engineers, technologists or technicians with demonstrated competence in a career relevant to the subject (and a relevant bachelor's degree, or subject to the approval of the Dean if this is lacking)
  • Engineers or technologists holding a bachelor’s degree from another discipline (such as mechanical and chemical engineering) wanting to up-skill in this area.

This program would not be suitable for a student with no relevant work experience or prior qualifications.

EIT will review each application to assess your eligibility.

The service was awesome, far above many universities. A module for engineering mathematics will also help to sharpen student's approach to engineering problems
