This course focuses on 1) understanding the recent technologies of fuel cells, solar cell batteries, and energy systems. All classes are arranged such that students who do not have special knowledge of each energy technology can still understand. This course intends for students to comprehensively study recent energy technologies along with visiting the Tokyo Tech Environmental Energy Innovation Building (PV building).
At the end of this course, students will be able to
Understand and explain recent energy technologies.
solar cells, fuel cells, lithium ion batteries, smart energy system
|✔ Specialist skills||✔ Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
In the first class, the instructor gives an overview of the course. All classes are arranged such that even students who do not have special knowledge of each energy technology can understand them. The instructor takes attendance every class. Students take a pert of the lectures together with international students who are participating in the Tokyo Tech summer program.
