Renewable energy

As the world’s energy demands increase, we can no longer ignore the rapid depletion of traditional energy sources and the negative impact fossil fuels have on the environment.

Finding renewable energy solutions is a complex issue that requires a multidisciplinary approach. Victoria University of Wellington can give you the skills you need in this field by offering a range of disciplines—business, engineering, policy, and science.

Power your future

There is a growing demand for renewable energy engineers and scientists who can work with communities and industry, lead projects, make recommendations, and design, build, and implement clean energy solutions.

You could work in a range of organisations, including energy companies, Māori and Pacific community-based entities, and local or national government departments.
