Learning Objectives

Provide students with basic knowledge of sustainable energy conversion technologies for industry and their environmental impact. At the end of the course, the students can apply their knowledge and understanding, and problem-solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study; They will have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments; They will be able to communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously; They will have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
