Energy Engineering

As we move further into the 21st century and innovation shows there are viable, efficient and sustainable energy resources, Energy Engineering courses provide students with the capacity to design and develop the energy technologies of the future. The energy we use in our homes daily is often supplied by an electrical grid, which needs to be designed, maintained and serviced by specialists who completed higher education Energy Engineering courses. The industrial sector also runs off of the knowledge and expertise students gain in Energy Engineering courses.

Energy Engineering courses focus on topics within a broad field dealing with energy efficiency, facility management, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies. Nuclear, oil, natural gas, coal, biomass, wind, geothermal, tidal or solar energy are some of the common sources of power that Energy Engineering courses will focus on. Energy Engineering courses may last for a matter of weeks or for several semesters, and will often incorporate lectures, seminars and practical assessments.

1950 - 2050: A century of Energy REvolution - understanding the transition of energy systems

TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time July 2017 Germany Berlin

Students interested in the technical and economical aspects of energy and resources. [+]

Best Course Studies in Energy Engineering 2017. Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Target group Students interested in the technical and economical aspects of energy and resources. Learning Goal/Output Understanding energy transitions towards decarbonization on a local and global scale Understanding the political decision-making processes Quantitative methods for assessment of policy decisions Working in a transdisciplinary environment Course Components The course will include the following components: - Interactive classroom-based lectures and discussions - Group work projects and presentations - Quantitative modeling sessions in a computer lab using GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) - Guest lectures e.g. from academia, NGOs, think tanks and the political sector - Excursions to conventional (including coal mining), and renewable energy sites Short Description There is no dispute that an average global temperature rise of more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels would lead to severe environmental and economic costs for society. A major challenge in tackling global warming is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, especially in the electricity sector. The “Energiewende” in Germany proves that a decarbonization of the electricity sector, in combination with a shut-down of all nuclear capacities is (technically) manageable and economically viable. As a result, learning-effects and reduced investment costs enable a market-driven worldwide roll-out of new technologies. In 2014, 144 countries already set renewable targets. As a consequence, the number of global renewable generation installations in 2014, outnumbered the combined number of new fossil and nuclear capacities. This course provides a general understanding of the economic, engineering, and political aspects of energy transitions. Additional insight is gained by guest lectures from practitioners, and field excursions to conventional and renewable energy sites. Prerequisites The course is intended for all students with majors in engineering, economics or political sciences in an advanced phase of their undergraduate or graduate studies. Lecturer(s) Dipl.-Ing. Roman Mendelevitch Dipl.-Ing. Pao-Yu Oei Dipl.-Ing. Jens Weibezahn and guest speakers (academic supervision: Prof. Dr. Christian von Hirschhausen) The lecturers are research associates with the Workgroup for Infrastructure Policy (WIP) at TU Berlin. Roman Mendelevitch and Pao-Yu Oei are also affiliated with DIW Berlin – German Institute for Economic Research. [-]
