New Zealand is a world leader in – and ideally placed for – innovation in renewable energy. Gain industry insights and explore technological developments with our roster of internationally-recognised experts, and prepare to lead in a sustainable global sector that continuously evolves to meet our daily needs. With significant input from top researchers from the Geothermal Institute, you’ll be provided with up-to-date skills and knowledge that directly apply to the real world.

This flexible programme lets you focus on a field of energy while pursuing courses from the Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science and Business School. Our schedules and streamed lectures allow you to study while working, and your research can align with your employment.

Programme structure

Most students complete a 120 point programme, although a 180-point option is also available. The following information is for the 120 point option.

  • You will complete two core courses that provide an overview of the industry’s business and technology issues.
  • The taught option requires the completion of a 45 point research project and three 15 point electives.
  • Electives let you pursue an aspect of the industry that interests you. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of courses that include focusing on a specific form of energy, or engineering technology, environmental science or business.
  • To allow flexibility, your research project is split into two parts; you will fulfil this requirement over two semesters. However, be aware that one part contains twice the course load of the other. You have the choice of which part to complete first.
  • The research programme is targeted at applicants with previous experience in the energy industry. This option involves completing a 90 point research thesis and two core courses.
  • In both cases, your research component requires working on a problem relevant to industry. This may cover economic, environmental, regulatory or technical issues.
