Associate Degree of Applied Engineering (Renewable Energy Technologies)
Applied Engineering course details
Course description and aims
The Associate Degree of Applied Engineering (Renewable Energy Technologies) is a two year associate degree that will give you access to a new and exciting career in the fast-growing renewable energy technologies sector. All students study the processes of conversion and storage of energy, then specialise in the infrastructure and activities associated with either electrical or mechanical engineering.
The course addresses the changing nature of the energy industry and will prepare you for what lies ahead as government and corporate priorities shift, and ambitious targets are set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
You can also use the program as a pathway into the third year of a bachelor degree in renewable energy technologies at the University of Newcastle.
Course outcomes and careers
