Engineering Science - Geothermal Engineering from University of New South Wales is designed to teach skills that will help you develop new and innovative energy technology solutions. You’ll study problems covering the technical aspects of earth exploration and development. 


Engineering Science - Geothermal Engineering from University of New South Wales provides extra research for the familiarity of students with these resources at an advanced level. It aims to help existing leaders in energy disciplines to solve problems related to earth exploration, as well as project economics and consider the environmental and social context of the industry.


The geothermal energy industry offers a wide range of career opportunities. Locating, assessing, and accessing the reservoirs is the job of those with skills in geology, geochemistry, geophysics, hydrology and reservoir engineering.

Direct-use geothermal technologies create jobs for heating engineers and employees within the green building industry and agricultural industries. Electrical and mechanical engineers, electrical technicians, electrical machinists, and mechanics are required to build power plants to produce electricity from geothermal energy.

In addition, the research and development sector of the geothermal industry must have highly qualified mechanical engineers, electronic engineers, geologists, chemists, and materials scientists.
