Increasing demand for energy is taking place against a backdrop of unprecedented change, new technologies, evolving communities, and industry and government needs. The challenge is to produce more energy while continuing to reduce carbon emissions.
A more focused consolidated approach to energy, carbon management and sustainability is required; recognising that need, the International Energy Centre (IEC) pioneered a new and practical approach to considering energy and climate change issues through thought leadership, education and innovation management initiatives.
Be part of the solution.
There are several education options for individuals such as the Master of Energy Studies (MES). Students become part of the solution and lead the transformation of the economy. The program develops skills that are highly sought in future energy leaders. MES graduates are influential advocates for an accelerated yet sustainable transition to a clean energy future.
Position yourself for the growth in environmental management and technology
The world has changed. Sustainability and environmental management are crucial issues, presenting significant opportunities and challenges for business, government and civil society. As organisations across the world redefine their approach to environmental management to ensure that sustainability targets and environmental commitments are met, there is a strong demand for skilled professionals who can offer solutions to complex environmental issues.
IES@UNSW environmental management degrees have been developed to provide a bridge across relevant environmental disciplines, as well as providing important applied interdisciplinary knowledge that has practical application in the workforce. Our students gain a global perspective on environmental issues through analysis of international and regional environmental issues and their governance.
2015 Writing Clear Science Workshops
What we teach:
We teach how to write clearly and succinctly, without sacrificing scientific accuracy.
We teach you how to get your thoughts down clearly and how to increase your efficiency as a writer. We teach how to write and design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.
The workshops cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, to analysing section and whole report structure.
We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.
