A Course on Energy Technology and Policy
Edgar, Thomas F.
Chemical Engineering Education, v41 n3 p195-201 Sum 2007
The emerging energy situation in the United States puts chemical engineering at the forefront of the large research and education effort that will need to be undertaken during the next 20 years. Chemical engineering undergraduates and graduate students will need to be literate on energy alternatives and the interconnection of technology, economics, environment, and government policy. The course described here, "Energy Technology and Policy," along with the associated Web site, will hopefully influence the knowledge base of chemical engineering students. The course emphasizes oral and written communication skills, and provides students an opportunity to integrate knowledge that they have acquired in other engineering courses. The author encourages other departments to consider adding similar courses either as regular courses, seminars, or campuswide offerings (where students outside engineering are enrolled). (Contains 10 tables.)
