A practical, industry-focused approach sets VU above and beyond other institutions. Using case studies and a project-based curriculum in workshop-style classes immerses students in real problems, and an expectation that energy resources will come from non-fossil fuels.
VU students learn in world-class facilities, including the $3.5 million industry-based Victoria Zone Substation Simulator Centre, not available anywhere else in the academic world.
Revolutionary learning model
Finally, this course is taught in a postgraduate-modified version of the award-winning VU Block Model. It is taught one unit at a time in eight-week blocks. This means more regular feedback and reduced study load so you can better manage work and other commitments, and no impact to the timing of the course’s completion.
Global leaders in Planetary Health
VU’s commitment to Planetary Health – through research, teaching and community engagement – was formally recognised with membership of the Planetary Health Alliance, and a ranking of #1 in Australia and #10 in the world for Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions (Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021).
