Mission Statement

Emphasis is given to renewable energy sources, their efficient and sustainable use. The course is composed of lessons on engineering topics and visits of industrial sites related to the lecture topics. The module will be enriched by lessons of professionals of the companies visited. Handout and questions will be delivered before each fild trip.

Content

International students explore German installations and technical solutions for renewable energy production and sustainable use. Students analyze different options of energy conversion and pros and cons in a context of future bioeconomy concepts. Students will learn about technological options with different environmental impact and are encouraged to elaborate options in their home countries. Based on the course topics students write a homework by drafting ways of providing energy sustainably to their companies choosen. Students use seminar discussions with experts for finalizing their homework.
