& Sustainable Technologies
Why choose this course?
Affordable energy, climate change, global warming and pollution control are the biggest challenges facing mankind.
Oil will run out in your lifetime, conversely the world’s energy demand continues to accelerate creating a 'perfect energy storm'.
Most of the words energy is driven by fossil fuel which releases large amounts of Co2 into the atmosphere creating climate change. New engineering and cost effective solutions will need to emerge, be manufactured and sold to help satisfy the need for energy and to tackle the many issues surrounding sustainability.
