    A memorable course for almost all engineers, the senior design course typically challenges students to solve real world problems and gain confidence in their abilities. It is an opportune time to expose students to new trends in engineering, while potentially inspiring their choice in where to start their career. By challenging soon-to-be graduates to map out the world energy portfolio until the year 2050, they are able to explore the opportunities embedded in the energy problem on their own. By their own calculations they see the reasons to work in this sector, providing invaluable personnel for the anticipated shift. The model's worldly basis also instills a sense of how the global economy will continue to intricate the interests of people and industries from all nations. The project also requires students to develop and discuss a technology evolution path for one energy source in depth. This develops the leadership skills of making decisions from incongruent reports, judging the reliability of a source of information and gauging the potential effectiveness of investment in different R&D areas.

    Arrange Hours and Credit. Hours and credits to be arranged. Permission of instructor required. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer. 0.000 TO 18.000 Credit hours

    Our research motivation also informs our decision to focus on solar energy education. By focusing specifically on this form of alternative energy, we are able to engage students in the technical and economic challenges of designing solar devices as well as bringing them to market. By solving the detailed balance for a single junction photovoltaic device, students are able to understand first hand where the thermodynamic limitations arise. In addition to the physics of the solar energy conversion, students are also exposed to the costs associated with different types of systems. This exposure to the rationales behind choosing one conversion method over another develops the leadership skill of deciding to invest in the cost effective system of the day or a close competitor that has a high potential for improvement. Making sound choices in the face of future technological uncertainty will play an important role in which companies flourish in the growing energy market. By exposing our students to these problems today, they will be better prepared to effectively communicate the issues with others and lead the group of emerging energy professionals.
