EdX is an online learning platform trusted by over 12 million users offering the Sustainable Energy Capstone Assessment in collaboration with University of Queensland - UQx. Apply the knowledge and skills you acquired in the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters program through in-depth assessment.


The Capstone Assessment is the last step to complete the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters®credential, designed to test knowledge and skills.

The programme

Successful completion of the Sustainable Energy Capstone Assessment programme at University of Queensland - UQx is one of the eligibility criteria for admission to the on-campus Master of Sustainable Energy at The University of Queensland. 

The Capstone Assessment involves two (2) graded assessment tasks and a further task to demonstrate ownership and originality of your work.

  • A 30 question, multiple choice, proctored examination worth 30%.  Questions will be drawn from all four courses (ENGY0x, ENGY1x, ENGY2x and ENGY3x).  Participants will be able to complete the assessment tasks at any point while the Capstone Assessment is open. Once the examination has commenced, learners will have 90 minutes to complete the examination.
  • Completion of a 3,000 word extended written work worth 70% (submitted to Turnitin, a text-matching software to promote academic integrity). To answer the question you will be expected to apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired from the four courses.
  • During an online interview using Zoom, you will be asked questions on your extended written work and from the four courses. While the online interview is not assessable, the interview is a mandatory requirement to pass the Capstone Assessment. The online interview is used to substantiate authorship and understanding of your extended written work, and your knowledge of the content of the four courses.
