In the energy management major of the Master of Engineering Studies, you will gain an detailed understanding of energy efficiency, looking at detail of energy use in industry and commercial settings, as well as tools for energy systems analysis and efficient building design.
It is a unique postgraduate programme in New Zealand. Taught in conjunction with world-renowned Murdoch University in Australia, it is the only fully-focussed energy management postgraduate programme in New Zealand. The programme has been running for over fifteen years.
Your learning will be set in the context of global renewable energy systems and tools. You will learn the detail of contemporary renewable energy issues including greenhouse science, global energy systems, policy, economics and management. This will specifically cover renewable energy devices, resources and system design.
Let our experts help you develop your own expertise. We bring a solid base of experience to your learning from our Centre for Energy Research, established at Massey in 1997 following over 25 years of teaching and research work undertaken in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy management. We also bring the most relevant and recent research to your learning. You will learn the theory and practice behind energy management, renewable energy and climate change from lecturers who have been working internationally, contributing to research and policy through panels that are setting the global agenda.
You can study towards the Master of Engineering Studies on campus, or study via our distance learning. This gives you the flexibility to remain in full-time employment while studying. Massey University has been offering distance education for over 50 years and you will be able to take advantage of our well-developed systems for teaching and learning. Part of your study will be a real-life energy management case study.
The renewable energy systems major includes an optional research project, where you can either investigate a topic you are interested in, or work with us to develop an industry-relevant piece of work.
You will gain an in-depth understanding of the theory of renewable energy systems, but also focus on practical information that can be applied to real-world situations. This could be through using the international Long Range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) model to assess climate change mitigation options for a country, city or community. You will also learn how to measure renewable energy resources, and understanding the challenges of providing energy efficiency or renewable energy systems in developing countries as part of sustainable development.
The programme also covers the social issues to change human behaviour regarding the deployment of renewable energy systems and related greenhouse gas emission reductions.
