Change the world

Join the unique Master of Engineering Studies (Renewable Energy Systems) to tackle one of the most important issues our world faces today.

The Master of Engineering Studies (Renewable Energy Systems) is a unique postgraduate programme in New Zealand.

Taught in conjunction with world-renowned Murdoch University in Australia, it is the only fully-focussed renewable energy postgraduate programme in New Zealand. The programme has been running for over fifteen years.

This qualification is suitable if you either have an undergraduate engineering degree and wish to specialise in renewable energy, or you have found yourself working in a renewable-energy-related role and need to upskill. You do not have to have an engineering degree to enrol.

Setting the global agenda

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.

Real-world learning

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 understand the challenges of providing energy efficiency or renewable energy systems in developing countries as part of sustainable development.

Your study includes examining solar radiation, wind, hydro, tidal, wave and biomass systems and their design, including economics and performance. You will look at the challenges in assessing, designing, introducing and maintaining small-scale renewable energy technologies in developing countries and study the scientific theory of global warming, climate modeling and social and technological approaches to reducing greenhouse emissions including greenhouse gas accounting principles.

The programme also covers the social issues to change human behaviour regarding the deployment of renewable energy systems and related greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Flexibility

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.

Dig deeper

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.

A year full time

The Master of Engineering Studies is a 120 credit qualification able to be completed in one year full-time, or part-time between 2.5 and five years..

Why postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. The Master of Engineering Studies will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles.

Not just more of the same

Postgraduate study is not just ‘more of the same’ undergraduate study. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study. It takes you to a new level in knowledge and expertise especially in planning and undertaking research.

Invest in your future

Renewable energy makes a sustainable difference to the world. As our energy sources diversify to include wind power, solar, and other renewable technologies, we see increasing demands for specialist skills and understanding.

The Master of Energy (MEnergy) degree is designed to meet the increasing need for experts across all areas of the energy sector – students with engineering, science, economics and business backgrounds who wish to attain a specialised qualification in this field are encouraged to pursue this versatile, multidisciplinary degree. You will be given a broad introduction to the industry while also exploring the ongoing developments in research and technology, eventually being prepared to embark on a career in a sector with a sustainable, satisfying and global career path.

This interfaculty programme allows students to concentrate on a specific field of energy while pursuing electives from the University’s Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science, and Business School. Graduates will be equipped with the technical prowess, regulatory and policy-related expertise, and business knowledge required for innovation in the energy industry as it continues to evolve to meet our everyday needs.

Programme Structure

Taught or research (120 or 180 points)
Full-time or part-time

The MEnergy’s flexible structure gives you the opportunity to consider your personal strengths, undergraduate qualifications, previous work experiences and learning objectives. This makes our programme an excellent choice for students who need to study part-time, or are currently working in industry. Options are available for either a taught or research-based programme – while the research masters is recommended only for those with considerable previous experience in energy, both include a compulsory research component, allowing you to experience working on an issue that is relevant to the energy industry.

Electives

Elective enrolments may depend on your prior study and professional experience, but ultimately, choosing the appropriate courses and topics can allow you to concentrate on and develop strengths in your energy field of choice.

Our broad list of electives include courses in:
• Geothermal and petroleum engineering: Specialised information on geothermal energy resources, exploration and technologies.
• Wind energy: In-depth knowledge of technical aspects relevant to this field – fluid dynamics, aerohydrodynamics and selections from Electrical Engineering.
• Energy, sustainability and the environment: A range of courses from Environmental Engineering and the Faculty of Science’s School of the Environment that cover local and international issues such as environmental assessment, policy and resource management.
• Business, economics and management: Key factors that can influence decision-making and the financial side of the industry. These courses are taught by academics throughout the Faculty of Engineering and School of Business, so you’ll gain relevant business skills, such as project management.

Next generation research at the University of Auckland

The Faculty of Engineering is dedicated to providing you with all the facilities, flexibility and support needed for you to develop the skills needed for the workforce. We boast research themes and programmes that provoke interdisciplinary projects, bringing together expertise from our five departments, other faculties, and industry partners and research organisations. Collaborative study is strongly encouraged – postgraduates in particular have the benefit of experiencing cohorts with diverse academic and industry backgrounds.

You will gain access to world-renowned experts who actively demonstrate the positive impacts research have on society. High-performance equipment and labs beyond industry standards are at your fingertips. Our facilities extend beyond study hours – we take pride in our involvement in student events and associations across the University, and are dedicated to providing you with academic, personal and career advice. We encourage you to take advantage of our resources, and use them to expand the possibilities of your research and career path.
