Deakin University provides higher education for suitably qualified Australian and full fee-paying students through open campus flexible learning modes in which the place, time, mode and pace of study are flexible.

The University operates across six campuses: Melbourne (Burwood), Geelong (Waurn Ponds), Waterfront (Geelong City), Rusden, Toorak and Warrnambool. Academic studies are co-ordinated through the faculties of: Arts; Business and Law; Education; Health and Behavioural Sciences; and Science and Technology.

Education and training is available at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels, covering the disciplines in these faculties and including professional courses, mid-career professional development courses and postgraduate studies by course work and research.

Most energy related research is conducted by groups within the Faculty of Science and Technology, such as the Environmental Engineering & Technology Group. The Built Environment Research Group (BERG) is located within the School of Architecture and Building. BERG's mission is to obtain, analyse and promote the most comprehensive knowledge on building environmental performance that will achieve the following outcomes:

  • Reduce building associated energy use and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Minimise the environmental impact of constructing and operating buildings;
  • Improve occupant comfort, thereby increasing human productivity.
Further information can be obtained from the BERG Web Site: www.ab.deakin.edu.au/berg/ or by contacting the Director: Dr Mark Luther luther@deakin.edu.au
