What is Photovoltaic & Renewable Energy Engineering?
Photovoltaics and Renewable Energy Engineering is the clever use of what we already have in abundance ~ sunshine, wind and other natural sources of energy. We tame the elements and use them to deliver energy to where it is needed.
Studying Photovoltaic & Renewable Energy Engineering at UNSW
Our students are some of the most energetic and enthusiastic people on the planet. Our teachers are world renowned in their fields. By combining these two groups, learning becomes both exiting and rewarding.
Our school and research centres have held the world record in high performance silicon solar cell for nearly 30 years. Several of the world’s largest solar companies were established by or have senior managers (e.g. CTO) who are our former researchers or alumni.

Degree program: Photovoltaics and Renewable Energy Engineering

After participating in the Great Engineering Challenge during high school, I was interested and researched online about the programs offered... I belong to Engineers Without Borders, Renewable Energy Society and Women in Renewable Energy... After I graduate, I plan to work in the renewable energy industry or in the sustainability in an organisation.
