Why study the Graduate Certificate in Energy Studies?

The Master of Energy Studies (MES) is an innovative program delivered by three leading Australian universities (The University of Queensland, The University of Western Australia and The University of Newcastle) and industry collaborators. The MES program equips the next generation of energy leaders, managers and decision makers with the skills and knowledge to address the challenges at the nexus of energy, climate change and sustainability. It pursues a multi-disciplinary approach in order to expose students to science and technology, business management, policy and economics in the context of clean energy generation and carbon management. The MES program is aimed at young and mid-level professionals looking to obtain a unique qualification that prepares them to strategically address the challenges posed by a carbon-constrained economy, positioning them to take on management and leadership roles in a field of growing importance.
* Please note that as of 2017, while the MES program will continue to be delivered in collaboration with the University of Western Australia and University of Newcastle, the degree will no longer be co-badged i.e. upon graduation the testamur students receive will feature The University of Queensland logo only.
