Michael Cashen

Agricultural Climatologist

Completed the postgraduate certificate in 2011

"I have found the postgraduate course to be comprehensive and cutting edge, allowing participants to explore all facets of anthropogenic climate change and the potential implications to the primary industries sector.

"Each of the four modules has been delivered by internationally recognised experts and the assessment process ensures academic rigour guarding the integrity of the final qualification.

"Agriculture is an applied science, working in the climate area requires a comprehensive knowledge of the latest developments in climate variability and change, greenhouse gas sources and mitigation potential, adaptation options and climate and economic strategy. This course has enhanced my knowledge base and created a solid platform for leading the agency in the climate change area."
