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.

New Zealand is a recognised leader in ensuring best practice in geothermal development. Being in Auckland – a three-hour drive away from most of the country’s high temperature geothermal systems – makes us perfectly suited to offer postgraduate study in this field.

This highly practical programme focuses on providing the necessary applied knowledge and skills required to pursue a career in the geothermal industry. It includes two field trips to the Taupo volcanic zone, and learning from our highly-regarded staff, all of whom are members of the Geothermal Institute and GNS Science.

Programme structure

This is a demanding programme with a high workload. It is only available during Semester Two. You will be expected to attend an average of four hours of lecture and two hours of tutorials each day, with additional work to be addressed during parts of your weekends.

You will need to complete:

  • Two 15 point compulsory courses focusing on a general overview of the geothermal industry and related technologies.
  • A 15 point research report on some aspect of geothermal exploration, development or exploitation, based on a study using field, lab, or theoretical methods.
  • One 15 point elective from the PGCertGeothermTech schedule. The lectures and examinations for these occur during weeks 8 to 13. Parts of this programme can therefore be completed in six-week blocks.
  • You must attend two week-long field trips to the Taupo volcanic zone, and complete a technical report after each trip. There will also be several day trips dedicated to visiting geothermal companies and sites of geological or geothermal interest.

Where could this programme take you?

This programme consistently achieves its aim to provide the best technical skills applicable to the field – we have trained over 1,500 students who are employed around the world as leaders in the geothermal industry. You may also gain wider industrial and technical perspectives to enable the pursuit of further research.
