2. LEARNING OUTCOMES

Learning Outcomes

The course provides undergraduate students integrative expertise in the management and design of energy systems. The course is based on the knowledge of previous semester courses and enables students to develop further knowledge in the analysis and synthesis of energy systems.

The course introduces students to the energy needs of heating and cooling ventilation and lighting and then analyses innovative energy production and saving technologies.

Finally, the aim of the course is to understand the importance of the evaluation of the energy systems’ performance, the energy systems’ sizing and design as well as their successful integration in the built environment.

Upon successful completion of the course the student will be able to:

  • Understand the critical features of energy systems and their principles.
  • Become aware of the tools and techniques of energy systems analysis and how they are used to ensure management of energy projects.
  • Analyze and calculate the key elements of the various energy production and consumption.
 
General Competencies/Skills
 
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in an international frame
