M E 433: Alternative Energy
(3-0) Cr. 3. F.
Prereq: PHYS 232 and PHYS 232L and CHEM 167
Basic principles, performance, and cost analysis of alternative energy systems including biofuels, bioenergy, wind, solar, fuel cells, storage and other alternative energy systems. Performance analysis and operating principles of systems and components, and economic analysis for system design and operation will be taught. Emphasis is on alternative energy technologies needed to meet our future energy needs at various scales ranging from household to city to national levels.
For the undergraduate curriculum in materials engineering leading to the degree bachelor of science. The Materials Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/ . Materials engineering is a broadly-based discipline relating the composition, structure, and processing of materials to their properties, uses and performance. Materials engineering includes a variety of traditional and modern technologies involving metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and electronic materials.
