Students will learn broad perspectives from science and engineering to socio-economics of hydrogen energy as an example, comprising from energy science, techno-economic systems, technology assessment in society, business and policy issues. The course encourages students to learn and consider the perspectives on hydrogen-energy system as an example.
The goal of this class is to obtain deep understandings of the broad perspectives from science and technology to hydrogen economy, and the promotion in collaboration with industry, government, and academia.
