Examination from given material, axcepted poster and poster presentation axcepted exercise work (notes)


After the course the student recognizes principles of processes changing energy from one form to another and identifies material properties to energy. The student can also identify critical material properties limiting the energy efficiency. The student will have knowledge of latest research and development achievements and challenges of renewal energy technologies and material challenges at field of solar energy, fuel cells, bioenergy, wind energy and energy storage systems. The student will also learn some general skills on the course. The course contains a poster presentation that is prepared in groups. The information search needed for the poster forces the student to gather, process, evaluate, analyse and use information in a versatile and critical way. Since the poster is prepared in groups the student also learns to work in communication and interaction situations in working life as required by the task as a member of the project group. Furthermore, the student will master English language at a level that allows him/her to follow the developments in the field and to work in an international environment.
