Course description and aims

This course is one of the electives provided in the lecture group of interdisciplinary principles of energy in the Energy Course, and opened as a course contributed by Japan Institute for Social and Economic Affairs (Keizai Koho Center). Timely topics of “Advanced Science and Technology in Energy and Environment” are lectured by distinguished leaders in industry and experts in research and development department of the company. In the course, the communication with lecturers is valued in relatively long discussion time, and the understanding and awareness of students should be deepened.
The aim of this course is to bring up a person with a global scope with providing advanced information of energy and environment and to create a vision for the future with combining academic and industrial insights. For high-potential students with ambition, professional expertise acquired in this course should be fruitful in the future.

Student learning outcomes

Since timely topic of “Advanced Science and Technology in Energy and Environment” is provides in every course, students should understand the current status and problems overcome and increase their awareness of the topic. The students are requested to summarize the contents of the lecture and their own opinion on the “Lecture note” in every course, and to verify and assess their progress by themselves.

Keywords

energy science and technology, environment science and technology, efficient use of resources, low carbon society, company's approach and socioeconomy
