Bachelor of Engineering (Energy Engineering) (Honours)


Energy Engineering is a degree in an emergent field of Energy in Transition, dealing with energy efficiency, reduction of fossil fuel use for energy generation. This major will open new geo-energy opportunities, such as geothermal, hydrogen systems, systems engineering, environmental compliance, sustainable energy, and conventional and emerging renewable energy technologies,
such as our new unit on green hydrogen production.

The major is designed to establish Curtin as the recognised global leader in research, education and engagement for Energy and  Resource Transition, with special emphasis on stewardship of air, water and land. This squarely fits within the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the 2050 Australia for Net-Zero Carbon Emission, Malaysia’s NDC in UNDP Climate Promise and the Sarawak Post-Covid 19 Development Strategy 2030. Upon completing the course, graduates will be ready to assist in driving forward Energy in Transition technologies globally.

This pioneering course, uniquely focused on the Energy in Transition movement, prepares students for a crucial role in shaping a sustainable future. With a robust curriculum tailored to guide them from the classroom to a dynamic career in the global energy sector, they will gain a strong foundation in fundamental engineering concepts in their first year through the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY).

Following this, they will embark on a comprehensive journey through diverse aspects of energy engineering. As they progress, they will have options to choose various specialisations, including Energy Conversion Technologies, Low Carbon Transition, Subsurface Energy Engineering and Power Systems Engineering.

In their final year, students will undertake a major research project and a team design project.
