Major field of study: Sustainable Energy Systems

The goal is to create design principles for technical energy systems, beginning with thermal power plants and spanning to the use of regenerative energy sources. The processes behind the manufacture of electrical energy and process heat, and methods to optimize these energy sources, are also conveyed, as well as the layout, construction and performance of their main components. Every technology is to be assessed on criteria such as efficiency, the availability of facilities, and cost, but just as importantly, on the amount of pollution caused by the conversion of energy.
