Many companies operating in the sector deliver a broad range of turnkey solutions that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions for businesses, governments, and homeowners. These companies typically require the technically capable and enthusiastic professionals who will graduate from this programme. As graduates gain more experience then they will have the opportunity to move into positions of energy management with responsibility for managing and controlling utility consumption and costs as well as implementing strategic and capital initiatives to promote resource and environmental sustainability.
The Energy Engineer could also be employed as part of a team involved in the modelling, installation, and commissioning of energy systems, in addition to investigating new power conversion technologies for renewable systems. This work would include the evaluation of system efficiency, system reliability, system costs and system complexity. Such investigations require a detailed system insight and understanding of the technologies, as well as the ability to model the system and predict behaviour in the field. The job of the Energy Engineer will require a significant amount of practical work and work in the field means discovering what happens when theory is put into practice.
