Demonstrations of Online Energy Units
From 2001, students have been able to enrol in a Postgraduate Certificate in Energy Studies, a Postgraduate Diploma or a Master of Science in Renewable Energy at Murdoch University and complete all the required units online (via the Internet), without having to attend the campus. They may also now complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Energy Management in the same way.
A demonstration version of an online energy studies unit has been created and may be accessed at http://lms.murdoch.edu.au/ with the guest login ID: G_42esunit and password: energy.
Listed below are study schedules for various energy studies units giving you an idea of what topics are covered and what sort of assessments there are for specific units. This is current as of Semester 2 2008 but is likely to be updated in 2009.
