New courses in clean energy

This academic year saw the introduction of new courses in clean energy developed by IGERT faculty advisors. The first in the series, Introduction to Clean Energy Science and Technology, was offered in Fall 2010 as Electrical Engineering 279AS and Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering 236. This lecture course covered energy policies and business, energy generation, energy storage, and energy efficiency. The course is uniquely taught by several IGERT faculty, each covering their area of speciality, as well as guest lecturers from campus and Los Angeles. The second course in the series, Advanced Clean Energy Science and Technology, will continue these topics in more depth and is being offered as Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering 298 in Spring 2011.
