Top Summer Courses in Energy Studies

Taking a class in energy studies during the summer can be a great choice to help the student shorten the length of time it takes to meet degree requirements. By graduating sooner, the individual can get a jump-start on his or her new career in the field of energy. Summer classes are also a good choice for professionals who are already working in the field.

If you have not taken a summer class before you may be wondering, "What is a Summer Course in Energy?" Summer classes are accelerated versions of the classes offered during normal school semesters. They meet more frequently in order to cover the same amount of material. A course in the broad field of energy could include classes such as:  energy engineering, energy management, oil and gas, or renewable energy. For instance, you might decide to select a class in oil and gas partnerships or perhaps a course in marine renewable energy.

Students who select classes in energy are usually intending to pursue a career in this field. The objective of the summer course is to provide an overview and help the student develop the analytical skills to understand complex issues in the field. The course will also provide a foundation so that the student can understand how to offer practical solutions.

The cost of a summer course will vary greatly depending upon the selection of the institution, where the student will be living, and whether the student is taking the class online or in a classroom. Students are encouraged to do their research so that the course and the school will be in alignment with individual goals.

Enrolling in a Summer Course in Energy offers added qualifications for someone already working in the field. For the student currently enrolled in a degree or certificate program, summer classes provide an opportunity to get ahead faster.

Summer courses in energy are available online, with international options. The advantages of enrolling in an online course are many, especially for the individual who needs a flexible schedule to accommodate work or other commitments search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

About

The activity will consist of twelve lectures. Each lecture will cover a topic contained in a standard Nuclear Physics textbook extended to show how our understanding has deeply changed due to the experience accumulated in the last decades. In particular, we shall concentrate on aspects related to recent progress driven by research with radioactive beams (RIBs), ab-initio structure model and modern nucleon-nucleon interactions, nuclear matter studies and applications of astrophysical and practical interest.

In order to give the activity a fully international character and because we aim at favoring the participation of really young students, the first half day we will propose some introductory lectures given in separated sessions in different languages.... [-]

About

Auditors need to develop and improve their ability to analyze changes, to address the related risks and challenges and to continuously adapt their audit methods and approaches. To do so, it is essential for audit institutions to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with academic researchers. In other terms, the audit profession and research must advance hand ­in ­hand. To reach this goal the University of Pisa and the European Court of Auditors (ECA), the EU’s independent external auditor, have set up and jointly organized a Summer School in public auditing and accountability

Aim

The School is a new learning opportunity for professional auditors (in both the private and public sectors), for students and scholars as well as for other civil servants and professionals to keep up to date on the latest trends and developments in this evolving field. In line with the ECA’s strategy, the School will open a structured dialogue with the academic world, provide additional opportunities for high­ quality training, facilitate knowledge exchange between practitioners and researchers and – last but not least – can provide a platform for study, discussion and information exchange on audit­related issues....

The E.ON Energy Research Center (ERC) of RWTH Aachen University, including the Institute for Power Generation and Storage Systems (PGS), the Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives (ISEA), the Chair and Institute of Power Systems and Power Economics (IAEW), is responsible for the academic content of the „Smart Electrical Power Systems“ Summer School and conduct the programme’s lectures, tutorials and laboratory classes.

Introduction to Smart Electrical Power

The share of decentralized power generation is steadily increasing, in particular renewable energy sources like wind and photovoltaics. Both wind and PV are connected to the electrical grid with power electronic converters and operated with a dc voltage internally. Also long-distance electrical power transmission systems and consumers of electrical energy like e.g. LEDs, heat pumps, (fast-) charging systems for electric vehicles (internally) operate with dc. Therefore, the applications of dc in distribution grids become more and more feasible and efficient, especially on system level. The lectures will discuss on future grid structures and application scenarios of dc technology. The focus is set on power electronic converters for dc distribution and dc transmission.... [-]
