Murdoch University’s Postgraduate Diploma in Energy & Environment (Global Warming & Climate Science) program has been developed to build environmental management skills in the energy industry. It is intended for Australian and international professionals working in the area or looking to move into the industry, with an interest to further their education.
As a student of this course you will gain an understanding of the policy context of energy systems, the associated environmental impacts, and their assessment and subsequent monitoring. There is a focus on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and global warming issues – currently areas of much attention and debate in governments and society in general.
You will need a relevant degree in a related area, however if you have alternative, satisfactory preparation you may also be admitted.
Open Universities courses are offered in specific study intakes every year, known as Study Periods or Sessions. This means more flexibility as you can choose when to start studying.
If you are studying undergraduate units you can start at the beginning of any of the four Study Periods each year, each lasting 13 weeks. Most postgraduate courses are offered in three Sessions per year, with each Session lasting 14 weeks.
Exams are usually held in the week following the end of each Study Period or Session.
One of the units in the program, (EENV513 Atmospheric Science) requires one week of on-campus training at Murdoch University in Perth to undertake laboratory work. If numbers in this unit are sufficient it may be possible to conduct this laboratory week at an alternative location.

Global warming and climate science is a growing issue that is leading to the introduction of new jobs. Since the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, governments and industry have continued to discuss the issues including reducing GHG emissions. There is increasing interest within these groups to develop policies to help meet environmental goals. It is expected that there will be high demand for personnel with expertise and training in GHG science and policy in the coming years.
Studying this course will expand your opportunities to work in government agencies, large companies that will acquire GHG obligations, companies entering or expanding their operations in the carbon trading arena, organisations active in the GHG policy debate and industry organisations seeking to advise members of obligations and potential opportunities.
