In 2011, the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism commissioned three small engineering energy efficiency education scoping projects, designed to underpin subsequent work to develop and provide a suite of high quality energy efficiency education resources for engineering lecturers to use in their existing courses.
The three projects were:
- Engineering Graduate Attributes Project 2011 (Opens in a new window)
This report provides initial perspectives from a small group of engineering academics on graduate competencies and learning outcomes by engineering sub-disciplines, as a basis for subsequent industry consultation, and developing energy efficiency education resources for engineering lecturers in Australian universities.
- Engineering Courses and Resources Project 2011 (Opens in a new window)
This report identifies a range of Australian university engineering courses that contain energy efficiency content. It also describes the coverage and priority that a sample of lecturers give to different energy efficiency topics, and identifies the education resources they prefer to use.
- Evaluation Plan Project 2011 (Opens in a new window)
This project identifies approaches to evaluating project outputs, and downstream impacts, of energy efficiency engineering education projects that were being designed by the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism.
