Green and Sustainable Technologies - S6006

Green and Sustainable Technologies

Master degree

The Master of Green and Sustainable Technologies recognises the increasing demand for graduates with expertise in green chemistry to lead the transformation of chemical and other industries where chemistry and chemical engineering play a crucial role, in delivering the products coming from those industries.

This course will provide you with core specialist studies in green technologies, focused on applications in different contexts, and integrated with sustainability principles covering both technical, business and societal and cultural issues. As a student in this program, you will have the opportunity to design and implement new products and processes that will highlight the role that chemistry has to play in addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  The program will provide you with the principles of green technologies and a deep understanding of sustainability issues that will lead to the reduction or elimination of hazardous substances involved in the design, manufacture and application of chemical products. The course will also examine the environmental, economic and social benefits arising from the transformation of the chemical industries of the future.

The Monash Master of Green and Sustainable Technologies is a two-year course that provides expert training in Green technologies coupled with Sustainability, where both these aspects have to be addressed for the future chemical industries and other enterprises where chemistry has a role. The principles of green technologies will be coupled with a firm understanding of sustainability issues that will lead to the reduction or elimination of hazardous substances involved in the design, manufacture and application of chemical products. The environmental, economic and social benefits arising from the transformation of the chemical industries of the future will be examined.

The course will provide you with core specialist studies in green technologies, focused on applications in different contexts, and integrated with sustainability principles covering both technical, business and societal and cultural issues.

The course also includes the opportunity for you to undertake an industry consultancy project or a research project. It is structured to allow maximum flexibility to take students with varied backgrounds in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, biotechnology, biomedical sciences, biotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences, and food science where chemistry is a key component of these other programs.

As a graduate, you will be strongly placed to gain employment in a range of industries, government and non-government organisations and to contribute to their continued development to meet the needs of the future.
