The Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Technologies is an advanced program, presented at a considerably higher level than the advanced diploma and bachelor’s degree level programs. This program has equal standing and level to that of a university Graduate Diploma but focuses on the career outcomes of a professional engineer and technologist. It has a higher vocational or ‘job related’ emphasis and focuses more on developing practical skills that you can apply to the workplace, rather than theory alone.
This program dives deep into the complex and ever-evolving world of hydrogen-based technologies. It equips students with specialized knowledge in hydrogen production, storage, and delivery, alongside insights into effective deployment strategies for specific industries, hydrogen’s role in the energy market, relevant policies, standards, and emerging trends. Designed for those seeking a comprehensive grasp of hydrogen’s potential beyond standard renewable energy courses, this program also caters to employers in need of highly skilled engineers in this niche field. Engineers will explore a wide array of design, implementation, and safety considerations in hydrogen technologies. Graduates with the program’s certificate will hold a competitive advantage in the job market, well-prepared for the demands of hydrogen engineering and management.
Specifically, graduates of the Graduate Certificate in Hydrogen Engineering and Management will be able to:
On successfully completing the course students will graduate with the Graduate Certificate in Hydrogen Engineering and Management.
