Professor Susan Krumdieck is at the cutting edge of engineering academia, showcasing New Zealand engineering education internationally.

Her development and offering of energy transition engineering, and her world-first development of an online micro-credential for professional engineers are major innovative developments. Her online, international delivery of the micro-credential makes it both creative and inclusive.

Transition engineering is required for effective action on climate change and for building a sustainable future. Professor Krumdieck’s Energy Transition Engineering course inspires and enables discovery and realisation of effective change toward carbon emissions downshift, in a variety of organisational contexts.

Susan has a massive impact on the field both within New Zealand and internationally– as proven by her recent recruitment at Heriot-Watt University in the United Kingdom to lead a major new research centre in energy transition engineering and deliver the course.
