Energy Technology, Economics and Policy

5. Science of Energy Generation This course focuses on mechanisms of energy conversion: the application of broader topics such as physics, engineering, and chemistry in the energy sector. There are two foci in this course: properties of fuels and systems efficiency. The first focus is dedicated to the understanding of the energy-generating properties of fuel sources. The energy efficiency of each of the fuel sources will be discussed in detail so that students will be able to take this knowledge and apply it to the economics of power generation. The second focus of the course will take what students have learned about these fuels and allow them to apply it to power generation systems. Students will begin by mapping the technology used to exploit a fuel’s thermal and kinetic properties to produce electricity, covering the cycle of power generation in different types of power plants.

6.Energy Distribution This course explores the technology for the storage and transportation of electricity as well as the infrastructure needed to transport energy resources between producers and consumers. Students will first learn the mechanism of energy storage and electrical distribution, building upon their knowledge of energy generation for different types of fuel. Students will also examine the potential for smart grid technology. From this study of power grid technology, students will examine energy intensity in utilities as well as energy-intensive sectors of national and international economics. The energy intensity of different nations will be examined across their economies through predictive models of growth.

Elective Subjects

12. Project Management for Energy Enterprises

The course will focus on the art of Project management especially for Energy enterprises.

It will cover topics like examination of life cycle of the product, designing and implementation of project process. Project costing, budgeting, human recourse, communication and time management are some of the aspects dealt in the course.

13. Project work

A project work is a study that allows a practical application of skills and knowledge.

Students work directly one-on-one with a Specialized Project Professor to develop their research topic or industry-related project. By specifying a particular area of expertise and developing their own body of research on that particular topic, students will gain real-world experience in an energy or environmental sector of their choice. The Specialized Project is not like an internship, however, as it requires accomplishing certain self-specified goals rather than those of an organization or firm. Instead, a student can choose to perform a research paper or hands-on experiment on any energy or environment-related subject—i.e.in the area of solar, hydro, biofuels, or wind energy, environmental impacts, climate change, national energy policies, etc. Students will then work with the professor, to whom they will give updates and from whom they will receive feedback as they continue their experiment and/or thesis project. The process will conclude with a final presentation, as a demonstration of their experiences and results. Students who excel within the Specialized Project will graduate with an improved idea of the specific sector they would like to enter. Students can also work with, where appropriate, a range of companies and agencies when developing and performing a Specialized Project that is particularly technical in nature. The ultimate goal is for students to explore a particular and detailed self-specified subject in the arena of energy and environment, and either conduct timely research or an innovative experiment that might give them further insight into the specific field they would like to enter upon graduation.

Industry Project
This course constitutes the solutions component of the Graduate Certificate program.
Students will be able to select Topics they feel are relevant to advancing the development
of cleaner energy technologies and policies and will choose a firm or agency with which to
pursue their research. Over the course of one semester, the student will work with an
organization partner to analyze energy-related problems within the industry or agency and
develop solutions to them. Students will not be required to work on-site with their
organization partner, but will be graded by a supervisor in the organization partner upon
completion of their project. This course provides students with the professional experience
to analyze problems and develop solutions to them that will work in a professional
environment.
Mentorship Program
Our mentorship coordinators will connect students with a mentorship organization. The
mentorship organization will then assign students to one of their employees to serve as a
student’s mentor. We envision a learning methodology in which the mentor will become like a
“Big Brother” to the student mentee. Mentors and mentees will be in contact via phone and
email, and in person whenever possible through face-to-face appointments. The mentors and
mentees will first meet at our Meet-and- Greet Session prior to the beginning of an academic
year. This will help ensure mentees’ academic success at College of Energy, Environment &
Sustainability, as well as give them invaluable access to the “insider” view of the corporate
structure.
One of the most unique aspects of the Energy Technology and Policy program is our Corporate Mentorship
Program. Mentorship is a proven learning enhancement technique that will help guide students towards
prospective career paths in clean energy applications by linking them with skilled experts in the
professional world.
