Renewable energy technologies are evolving rapidly. They include geothermal heat sources, carbon capture and storage, mineral sequestration, photovoltaics, polymer cells, oxyfuel technologies, and wind turbines. There is international demand for renewable energy technology and specialist engineering professionals with related skills in energy technical expertise as well as safety regulations. In Australia, growth in demand for engineers and technicians in the renewable energy sector is predicted to triple between 2008 and 2020.
This pathway program will allow you to build on the knowledge gained from your TAFE Associate Degree of Engineering (Renewable Energy Technologies), and finish with a bachelor degree after one year of university study. You will develop the business and technical skills required for a career as a renewable energy professional. We will help you develop an informed, critical-thinking approach to seeking solutions to renewable energy issues. You'll learn how to design, develop, install, commission, maintain, repair or decommission renewable/sustainable energy technologies, and coordinate with energy, technical and safety regulations.
