Scholarship / Master of Energy Change - Why did you choose your proposed course and institution (AAS) [2]

Why did you choose your proposed course and institution?

It is undeniable that the impacts of climate change are increasingly felt, especially in Indonesia, an archipelagic country. Gas emissions resulting from energy production significantly accelerate these impacts towards catastrophe. As a civil servant in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and a father, this raises considerable concern for the lives of my daughter and the next generation, and I feel that I have a greater responsibility. It motivates and compels me to take an active role in achieving net-zero emissions. Transitioning to carbon-free forms of energy is a complex problem; this has socio-economic risks for countries dependent on fossil fuels. The right strategy is needed formulating regulations and policies for energy stability.

Australia has a reputation as a leading exporter of critical minerals and has expertise in energy efficiency and technology solutions for renewables. That's what strengthened me to pursue my master's studies in Australia. I have been searching for quite a while to choose a suitable master's program. I applied to the Master's Program in Energy Change at The Australian National University and the Master's Program in Sustainable Energy (Management) at The University of Queensland. Both offer the flexibility to choose the area of expertise among various exciting electives. I want to deepen my knowledge and skills in the energy system and other related fields, such as the linkages with aspects of technology development, economic aspects, social communication, and strategies for implementing regulations and policies. I believe this can open my perspective and improve my capability to contribute to solving complex real-world energy-related problems with knowledge, expertise, and experience, especially in the development of human resources in this field. In addition, with the diverse student background that will participate in this master's program, I believe it can enrich discussions both inside and outside the classroom.
