Transition Engineering – Building a sustainable future

Online short course - Energy transition engineering, management and policy

Learn to move your perspective, get un-stuck from the Business-As-Usual, and discover the real value creation in carbon downshift.

Global warming, resource constraints, pollution, environmental destruction, and now the COVID-19 pandemic means a rapidly changing understanding of the role of engineers. This course will prepare you to contribute to the transition of all current systems and operations. There has never been a greater need for engineering to respond to the challenges of mitigation and adaptation. 

One business leader explained why they supported their team to take the course:

“We need help with the complex problems of transition to zero carbon while managing all of the pressing demands of our core business and rapidly changing business and social context.”

In times of uncertainty and disruption, policymakers, business managers and communities will need Transition Engineers in all fields to help with the massive transformational changes required.
