Course details

The Master of Low Emission Energy Technology is designed for engineering graduates interested in upskilling in the rapidly evolving energy export and utilisation industries.

About the course

With a profound shift from traditional emissions-controlled liquefied natural gas to cleaner and more sustainable energy vectors such as hydrogen and ammonia, this course plays a pivotal role in preparing you for this transformative journey. Upon graduating, you'll be equipped to bridge the gap between traditional energy export methods and emerging sustainable energy vectors of the future by gaining detailed knowledge and understanding of core concepts including energy export vectors, the ability to assess environmental and energy efficient impacts, and the ability to design strategic energy export plans.
