Modern society depends on stable and readily available energy sources. Renewable energy is a progressively important component of energy supplies. Bircham University’s Renewable Energies program comprises of energy conversion and the use and storage of renewable technologies such as wind, biomass, fuel cells, solar and hybrid systems. Thermodynamics form the foundation for modelling renewable energy systems. This program also touches upon the environmental costs of energy conversion and how renewable energy can lessen air pollution and global climate change.
Subjects covered on this course include: Renewable Energy, Thermodynamics, Energy Distribution Systems, Fuel Cells, Wind & Tidal Energy, Biofuels & Bioenergy ,Solar Energy, Geothermal Energy, Climate Change, Alternative Energies, Energy Process Engineering, Energy Pollution Control & Energy Engineering.
The Renewable Energies program is available at Specialist, Expert, Bachelor's, Master's & Ph.D. (Doctoral) Degree program levels.
