4.5 STARS This was a small subject (about 30 students) and seriously underrated IMO. The lectures are split into physics, chemistry and earth science modules. Physics lectures talk about the laws of thermodynamics, various engines, electrical circuits, magnetism, and the basic physics/equations behind methods of producing electricity (hydro/wind/geothermal etc). Chemistry lectures discussed solar panel technology, photosynthesis and batteries. Earth science lectures described the Earth's solar energy balance, the impacts of various energy generation methods, as well as how Australia's/the global energy industry worked in terms of pricing and distributions. I was able to follow the lectures pretty well and I am NOT a physics/chem student (I had basic high school knowledge of both and hadn't touched stuff like thermodynamics before). It was really interesting hearing about all the energy transitions taking place and how the world is adapting to climate change, and being able to explain the principles behind coal stations/car engines/wind turbines. The assessments were pretty easy too, an MST that was 6 MC questions lol and a group essay that was just answering some basic solar questions that were covered in tutorials. Not giving 5 stars because the tutorials weren't always that engaging, and although the lecturers were super nice people they were a bit disorganised. The exam was also a bit brutal (3 hours with lots of questions and 2 essays) but it scaled up so that was alright. Ultimately I would highly recommend!
