“I was awarded an Australia Awards Scholarship in January 2016, and this gave me the opportunity to select any Australian university. I decided to do my research with Sustainable Engineering Group (SEG), as the group endeavours to address sustainability issues in a real world setting.

My supervisors, while highly qualified, are approachable and very helpful.

The expertise I’m gaining from my supervisors and the courses offered by SEG, assists me in my research which aims to assess the eco-efficiency of renewable energy technologies for remote area power supply in Western Australia. We are supported in our studies and the supervisors are very motivational.

I would recommend Curtin as it’s a multicultural university where I’ve met people from all over the world and I’m making life-long friends in the process.

I would certainly recommend the program to others.”

“My passion for sustainability has led me to being a leader in the energy sector.

I see my Sustainability Management degree giving me the skills, tools, insights and people support to lead the energy sector as it grapples with the unprecedented change and technological disruption that is emerging.

My SEG degree has been invaluable in helping me become more aware of the sustainability issues facing Australia and the rest of the world and provides me with the added confidence to challenge the status quo of doing business in the energy sector.

Over the past four years, the learnings from my Sustainability Management degree have significantly contributed to me making more effective and sustainable business strategy decisions and more recently has enabled me to diversify my professional experience in the area of the government energy sector policy.

I’m looking forward to continuing my SEG studies and learning about new ways to do business in the energy sector.”

“I chose to study MSC (Sustainability Management) as I’m really interested in sustainability and believe it is a vital and relevant component in all fields. The course, as well as the people teaching and studying it at SEG , are innovative, forward-thinking, practical and realistic. I’ve developed a lot as a student during my studies as my critical thinking skills have sharpened. The course has introduced me to different angles and perspectives on sustainability and the need for a holistic approach in sustainability management. The course is comprehensive, challenging and has helped me become a better engineer.”

“It is one thing to be passionate about sustainability and apply it in our everyday lives but an entirely different thing to embed it within organisational culture and operations. I have truly enjoyed the learning journey this course on Organisational Strategies for Sustainability has provided and it certainly will assist me in sustainability leadership in my organisation. The realistic and practical assignments have challenged me into thinking critically about strategies to overcome organisational barriers in adopting sustainability practices and how to take critical steps in initiating and sustaining transformative change. I look forward to taking more units within this course to develop further practical knowledge and skills in sustainability management.”

“Undertaking this course has been a great way to build my foundation of knowledge on sustainability. I’ve always had a passion for the environment, this course has helped me develop an understanding of the wide range of issues surrounding the sustainability, the drivers for change, and tools and guidelines to help work towards greater sustainability in any industry.

My fellow students came from diverse professional backgrounds,  local government, mining industry, construction, banking, teaching, property development, and international governments. Interaction and discussion were encouraged during the lectures; hearing examples from other students’ experiences really helped illustrate the many ways sustainability can be applied.”

“The reason I enrolled in the sustainability course was to enrich my ability to address agronomic challenges from a sustainability standpoint.

While studying at SEG, I had the opportunity to share experiences with people who have witnessed challenges in the field and are studying to address them. The SEG degrees has also offered me more job opportunities. Presently, three consultancy groups in Cameroon have asked me to work with them as a consultant. 

The training has stimulated my desire to learn more about sustainability. As a result, I am presently making arrangements to further my educational career in sustainability.”

“The Sustainable Management course run by the Sustainable Engineering Group at Curtin is broad based and addresses a number of areas, from a social and engineering perspective. After completing the course I have been able to enhance the skills I have from my undergraduate degree and apply the theory in a number of situations.  The flexibility of the seminars and the availability of the staff enabled me to complete the course whilst working.  The style of the seminars encouraged discussion with other students which enhanced the course.”
