Energy Resources Engineering Program (ERE)
Sustainable Energy and Environmental issues are the greatest threat to our planet this century. There is evidence that relates climate change to consumption of Energy; in particular, large Power stations.
The Energy Resources Engineering Program is intended to provide state of the art education in conventional and Renewable Energy Resources and its conversion by means of economically and environmentally sustainable system and technology. The Program is interdisciplinary in nature; it contains mechanical, electric, and environmental subjects which contribute to the basic understanding and advances in energy and environment.
- Evaluate the sustainability and environmental issues related to mechanical power systems.
- Use energy efficiently.
- Apply industrial safety.
- Apply and integrate knowledge, understanding and skills of different subjects and available computer software to solve real problems in industries and power stations.
- Lead or supervise a group of engineers, technicians and work force.
- Carry out preliminary designs of fluid transmission and power systems, investigate their performance and solve their essential operational problems.
- Design, operate and maintain internal combustion and steam engines.
